odd that Mark Free was not the original singer of "The Last Time", despite working with same writers on his album... Agnetha Faltskog recorded it before him and even shot a video.Such a great song, shame it was not a bigger hit for either of them.

Wow, had never realised Agnetha had a career outside of ABBA

 

yes, and on her solo releases she worked with such writers as Holly Knight, Diane Warren, Russ Ballard... and did duet with Peter Cetera :)

Was listening to Ten's first album (yaaay it arrived yesterday). Am loving it but one of the tracks reminded me of an old favourite:

Heart How do I get you alone? so looked up that to listen to and hit on the cover by Alyssa Reid retitled Alone Again. I think it's a pretty cool reworking of the song

This one was always intriguing to me as it is a killer song, but alas a cover of a fairly unknown song.

Is this the original, from 1983?

 

 

I also thought it was a Heart song too, for a very long time.

Ooh, that has more depth of feeling to the performance. (Told you I was lazy; I really should have checked who originally wrote it)

I like this version, but I think I still favour Heart. It's a great song, either way, though.

Lots of songs were covered to great effect in Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge movie including

Your Song - Elton John

Roxanne - Police

Absolutely!! and yaaaayy I've just solved something that has been bugging me for the last few days... just as with this song, the original feels more 'authentic' to me emotionally but I actually prefer listening to Heart's version, that's what it is with Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven. Awesome, A.W.E.S.O.M.E song but I'm ashamed to admit I prefer listening to Far Corporation's version as it has more 'punch' to it :yikes:

The i-ten version is far superior imo but you cant fault the Heart vocals.

 

The guitars on iten are classic tho.

GW always does covers but this one is a super one.

Knockin' On Heaven's Door - Heaven. R.I.P Allan

 

Nice call. Always preferred their version over GNR and GNR did a killer job of it.

 

RIP Mr Fryer.

Excellent version.

 

 

Agreed. Always meant to check these guys out because of the Trixter connection but never got around to it. Like that.

    • Make Love Like a Man - Def Leppard.   Released as a single from "Adrenalize". I've always hated it. Easily the worst DL song IMO.
    • Thanks mate. I don't know why I was having trouble finding it.
    • what a weird album.  The first 4 tracks are all great and exactly what I want to hear from TMF. then 2 gigantic fillers absolutely kills it imo.  the album in the second half loses momentum - 2 or 3 solid songs at best before a strong end in winner takes all. overall I think the Defiants is much better and teds last solo offering was awesome. I do like those first 4 tracks tho   
    • Seems like they stuck with the same gritty approach to production but it sounds a lot better than the debut. I'm digging this one!
    • I do like the song itself, but I would agree it's such a drastic change in pace that it disrupts the flow quite a bit.  I probably would have swapped that with 'Look Into Me' and placed it near the end of the album.
    • An evolution on the debut in the sound and production...more mature...more Defiants like😂 The title track sure crashes the momentum after the first four awesome tracks.     
    • Ok now that I have listened to it several times, this is my favourite song and it's a beauty. The last track on the album 'Last Train'. You get the vibe of Los Angeles and Sunset in one song. One of the best songs I have heard so far in 2020.    
    • It’s an anti “best of” list.  Songs that were big hits or band’s signature tracks that to be honest are not a favourite of yours...you can’t even add them to a “best of” mix on your phone or on a CDR...and some just down right suck!   Headed For A Heartbreak- Winger (so boring!) Wanted Dead Or Alive - Bon Jovi (Dead please!) Dude Looks Like A Lady - Aerosmith (awful!)..Rag Doll was even worse Cherry Pie - Warrant (not a bad song but the majority of the rest of the album is way better) Mr. Roboto - Styx (I still can’t forgive Dennis for that mess) More Than Words- Extreme (I like the song but damn that was so not the Extreme sound in general...my dad thought it was the Everly Brothers) When The Children Cry - White Lion (I cry because I can’t take it anymore...too sappy) Pretty Fly For A White Guy - The Offspring (nice sell out boys) Enter Sandman - Metallica (It’s almost become a jingle and was so over played) Silent Lucidity- Queensryche (I saw them live and they ended the concert with this one...talk about not leaving the show on a high)
