    So far I've thought the official song was originally by Joss Stone, and before playing was expecting the entry by @poopot to be what I now realise is The Script's 'Breakeven (Falling To Pieces)'. :3

    It's not going well, except I've decided on my own choice, and it won't be a swing version!

    That's betraying your love of 00s pop I think ;)

    I'm definitely in for this one, didn't expect to see one of these cover challenges for my favourite band so it's too good an opportunity

    Part of the reason for my choice is that it allows people to tackle the song in one of two ways so rock fans and soul fans both have a cool song to try.

    In 2022 there should probably be a "Fell in love with a non-binary person" version.

    I'm returning to my roots and have already started a mashup with the working title

    Fooled Around And Fell In Love With A Girl

    Should hopefully have it in soon. Not much more complicated than Napalm Death tbh

    OK sent mine in.

    It's barely mixed. It's MIDI bass as I became rage.  And it gets sloppier and sloppier as I run out of talent and patience.  But I did it as it felt like a sneaky challenge from @flying_pie ... the bastard :)

    I've sent a replacement because @IMC1980 decided to make me EQ the bass to "something acceptable"

    (it was a fair comment)

    I assumed you were going for a techno vibe.... ;)

    Good effort you lunatic

    But seriously though, sort out the bass

    I hope he's not on another bellend ban


    You do realise @Bezzer ; that there's enough time for you to also cover For The Love Of God and Flying In A Blue Dream.....
