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.

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.
