But the worst new example, and a total waste of money and talent, is from the successor to Bridget Jones' Diary, it's a song performed by Jamie Cullum, one of the most talented and promising young musicians currently walking this earth. Huge was my disappointed to find the song is only a poor carbon copy of a mellow track from the seventies. Argh! What a waste of talent!
So why do they do it? I don't really know. I take it's a fear of taking chances. They don't want to risk their neck, so they fall back on something proven. The net result is, of course, a huge feeling of deja vue with the audience. Which is rather annoying, boring and bland, not fresh at all.
Just as a token of what could have been, here's two original tracks from unknown people. Enjoy.
