    I love Des’ree. Bloody gays never let me like anything unless I say it’s ironic

    To be fair you can be as IRONIC as you ALL WISH, but she had SOME decent songs. Impromptu top 5:

    1. You Gotta Be
    2. Kissing You
    3. Delicate
    4. Crazy Maze
    5. Feel So High

    Although the well is pretty shallow beyond those. Obviously Life and What's Your Sign, but they go BEYOND PARODY.

    I quick BROWSE through her back catalogue shows she includes Feel So High on THREE ALBUMS.

    Where Des'ree leads, Britney follows.

    EXACTLY this. I bought "Feel So High" the first time around because it was so good but then nothing beyond that.

    "Life" is fucking APPALLING and "You Gotta Be" had any life drained out of it by the time of its fourteenth release.

    The outro does have these pretty perfect Des'ree lyrics:

    I believe in you, every day, every day,
    I believe in you, every way, every way,
    I believe in you, yes I do, yes I do,
    I believe, I believe in you

    Ivor Novello is shaking in his coffin.

    What the fuck IS it? An electric heart? A metallic slug? The remnants of Des'ree's career?

    The album is really dull.

    I quite like 'Nothing I Can Do'. That's it.

    She'd rather have piece of toast than sell her soul to BBC breakfast for promo

    The album's actually really lovely. Nothing groundbreaking OBVIOUSLY but a very pleasant listen.

    I didn't hear any massive lyrical bombs although there's something about Year 9 poetry homework about:
