    Angry at the massacre of one of my favourite songs, I asked who this woman was.

    Apparently it was some woman called John Farnham :-)

    So...my random thoughts are
    A) why would he ever record this 'cover' and
    B) why haven't I ever heard it before?
    Because you've been living under a rock!

    Something similar happened to me!

    I was singing Help, the Beatles version and DP asked me what i was singing, I sung more of the song & DP says, "that sounds like a John Farnham song". I have never heard the John Farnham version, so I said to DP "He must have a similar song" 😕.

    Now it makes sense!! Hahaha

    I'm a bit of a loner on this one and actually prefer the John Farnham version. I think the tempo suits the lyrics better.

    It's a nice song, don't get me wrong! Just the tune is completely different so I don't get why he just covered the words...

    So my DH is a The Beatles nut. He tells me that John Lennon always thought the song should have been slower and wished he had recorded it like that. So a few people (farnsy and Tina turner most notably) recorded it like that. I hate it!

    I think I understand what you mean.. kind of like remembering that when you first watched it you thought they were attractive? When I first watched Peter Pan (the latest one with the blonde kid), I was a similar age to the actor and thought he was dreamy.. now watching it I think he's cute still but not in the same I love him way but appreciating that he looks good.

    Yes! This is exactly what I meant. It's like watching twilight (bad example) and remembering my huge crush on Taylor Lautner. Now I don't have the same feelings for him now but I remember the crush I had then you know.
