The Gossip as Georgie Michaels? Kylie as Roxy Music? Lily Allen as the Pretenders? Is this the best covers album in the world like ever?

Guilty feet, huh?

Love it or hate it (we hate it) but Radio 1 has, at last, come up with a half decent idea (roll any drums you have around, parp on a horn). 

To ‘celebrate’ its 40 years at ‘the top’, the station is putting together an album of A-listers each covering a song from one of the forty years it has been going (also known as in the forty years since pirate radio was outlawed).

As well as that little lot, you’ll get a chance to hear…

Amy Winehouse singing ‘Cupid’ by Johnny Nash (us either), ‘Betcha By Golly Wow’ by the Stylistics refashioned by Sugababes, Britney’s ‘Toxic’ as re-imagined by Hard-Fi and Madonna’s ‘Crazy for You’ performed by Groove Armada and – while we’re on Madonna – (hold onto your lunch) ‘Ray of Light’ by Natasha Bedingfield….

They’re all here from Robbie (doing, appropriately enough, The Kinks), The Feeling (‘You’re So Vain’ by Carly Simon – oh, yeah!) and Mika (‘Can’t Stand Losing You’ – The Police) to Girls Aloud (‘Teenage Dirtbag), Mutya (doing Tracy Chapman’s ‘Fast Car’) and The Streets (Elton’s ‘Your Song’!)

But we are especially looking forward to ‘Careless Whisper’ by Beth and the boys and Kylie’s ‘Love is the Drug’…

  2. I have to say, Ray Of Light is one of Madonna’s weaker songs to my mind, but still, it doesn’t deserve the ignominy of a Natasha Bedinfield re-recording

  3. I’m liking the idea of The Feeling doing You’re So Vain. But the idea of Robbie doing the Kinks – perlease.
