The songs that I don't have much of a personal connection with the original translate better her (example: Hand on my Heart)

This version of I Believe In You got a bit of play on some advert or other, didn't it?

I'm glad she didn't go for the higher notes in the chorus as in the original, it would've ruined what they're going for here.

I believe (:basil:) I'm also right in saying that this arrangement is pretty much the same as the one from The Kylie Show in 2007.

Love IBIY. Doesn't reach the highs of the original (literally :basil:) but it's nice to listen to as far as BBC at the proms versions go.

I'm not really feeling this I Believe In You version. Come Into My World is nice and kind of spooky weirdly

"I need you love like night needs morning" is such a evocative lyric and this version really highlights it

This ALSO got a hot studio performance video like OANLT did.

This is actually the main version of FF that I know - I was only vaguely aware of the original.

I'm not REALLY the only one who thinks this is stunning, surely :D

Such an out there choice but I'm glad someone realised how well it would work because it does.

More resplendent strings! :disco:

She's also a very strong 'actor' on this.

This is my second favorite so far after Hand on My Heart - especially the end with the strings

Now Confide In Me is obviously brilliant. But it loses points for me for not being that different to the original.

She's done this arrangement on at least one of the tours since, I'm pretty sure - I love the prominence of the "confide in me, and you will see, what we could be" lines.

This. It's pretty but why put this on when the amazing original is around? The drums are nice though

Am I misremembering or is the Hurts cover of CIN quite similar to that? I recall it being quite DARK.

Slow - she picked the wrong genre from her rollerdex for this one. I don't really like the bluesyness at all.

Slow is a bit too... JAZZY for me, I think?
