Tim: Who’s for an X Factor winner’s single? From Denmark, that is.
Tom: Now, that’s someone you wouldn’t expect to win a UK X Factor. 15 years old and lesbian? I think I’m right in saying all the British winners are significantly more middle-of-the-road. And it’s not often I really appreciate a Beatles cover, let alone one off a reality show, but she can belt out ‘Come Together’ incredibly well.
Tim: The lyrics are of the ‘how can you be with her, have you forgotten me already?’ variety, but fortunately the music’s nowhere near as bland. It been composed by a rather good Danish bloke who calls himself Xander (and whose music we’ll hopefully get around to discussing on here at some point), and it’s pretty much on the other side of the world from the usual British X Factor fare.
Tom: And it’s so much the better for it.
Tim: Interesting, original – basically it’s not trying to be like everything else out there, and it is, as you say, much the better for it. This is an X Factor winner I would be very happy with.
Tom: Damn right.
