Weekend Video: Claudia Brücken - Everyone Says "Hi"

Former Propaganda singer covers David Bowie on her current album. Clever bastards will note Glenn Gregory out of Heaven 17 making an appearance around the two minute mark.

And, if you're into that kind of thing, here's the original.

Any excuse for a bit of Bowie.

What an embarrassment for Claudia Bruecken. I saw her on BBC2 and was so shocked that a performer like this could be allowed to make a public appearance on national TV that I had to check her out online. What on earth is she trying to achieve by making this record??? You have to be astonishingly good to even attempt to cover Bowie. It requires courage. This woman is probably so deluded that she has no fear. It is an astonishingly bland and pointless version of a much better original. All this woman is doing is waving a big signpost saying: "I can't sing, I can't emote, I have a bad accent!" Good job you posted these two versions side-by-side to show their crass differences. Bowie rules!

K: Fair enough. But you are wrong, and Bowie publicly approves of this version.
