tearing up my heart

Flamboyant songstress, Paloma Faith, has recorded a cover of "Never Tear Us Apart", originally recorded by INXS. Her version of the "Kick" classic will be used as part of the current ad campaign for UK retailer, John Lewis.

It stays rather faithful to the original. Pardon the pun. Well sung. Hard to beat the gritty, emotional performance which Michael Hutchence delivered way back in 1987.

No word on weather the song will be stripped onto her current longplayer, "Fall To Grace"

  1. My favorite thing about Ms. Faith is just how much range of reaction that her vocals bring out in listeners. It is the greatest example of true artistry to elicit raves and boos, have both praise and vitriol heaped upon your work. Look at Bjork, Yoko, hell even Lennon or Mozart for that matter.
    I am a big fan!
