To be honest, I wasn’t expecting too much from it since I hadn’t been impressed with anything Cardle had released since winning the show back in 2010. His winner’s single, a cover version of Scottish rock trio Biffy Clyro‘s “Many of Horror” retitled as “When We Collide“, topped the UK Singles Chart to become the 2010 Christmas number 1 and remained there for three consecutive weeks. His 2011 debut album Letters reached number 2 in the UK and Irish charts, with his follow up The Fire a year later only reaching number 8 in the UK, and 14 in Ireland. (source: Wikipedia)
I suppose that’s a decent enough start to his career, but nothing spectacular and none of the songs were exactly that catchy.
And despite me liking Mel C and her voice, she hasn’t exactly had much commercial success in the past few years, so I was thinking this could possibly be two sinking ships desperately trying to cling to each other.
Well cling to each they do (literally, in the video).. but somewhat surprisingly this duet does work. And they look good together too..
Personally I thought the video was a bit odd since you barely see Mel C in the first half despite hearing her voice, but once she pops up on screen it gets better I feel.
Do I think this will some big hit and rock the charts? No, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it does alright. I can’t imagine people bopping down the street singing the chorus like some big hits, but you never know I suppose.
I enjoyed the song enough to listen to it a couple times.. and must have liked it on some level enough to post it on here I guess. LOL
Anyway, enjoy the video, and let me know what you think of their duet.
