yeah, I agree with Lizzi. Although he's a legend, he could have chosen another song, not AM's IBTYLGOTD. Maybe he did his best, performing this song, as the french way wrote : 'at least there was a real... involvement in the song', but... I don't really enjoy this cover.

He sung also with Joss Stone "Ain't That A Lot of Love?" and "Kiss", same covers indeed. But I have mixed feelings if his "Sexbomb" would have been appropriate for such concert.
For every piece to fall in place,
forever gone without a trace,
your horizon takes its shape,
no turning back, don't turn that page.

What's that supposed to mean lol
He's a 60+ year old singer. He's no rock god lol

Anyway, obviously it wasn't as good as the Monkeys version but he did well to convert it into his style.


Exactly thats what I kinda meant just couldnt put it like that

He doesn't just do covers.
It was simply something he wanted to do. It won't hurt his career, it was a bit of fun lol
Get off his back people lol :D

he's stupid. seemingly nothing can hurt his career - even sexbomb didn't, which surprises me tbh.
I hate him, his songs and his covers.

I'm done with him now. lol. happeh Loverboy? :milton:

Yeah he's fucking brilliant lol
His musics not my style but back in the 60's/70's when he was in his prime he was so cool with the finger clicking and clapping. Not many people can sing like that.

I like the songs of Tom Jones, but he really screwed his "I bet you look good on the dancefloor" version. Anyway, I think it's funny too that Tom Jones is a arctic monkeys fan :milton:
