  • Can You Tell These from The Originals?TOTP LPs live!!!

    Back in UK, inspecting my property empire, i found myself shopping in a Co-Op supermarket yesterday.

    They have piped music playing and it is TOTP -style copies of hit records. I thought this had completely died out outside this board....My questions:

    Has Lord Thames bagged a lucrative consultancy gig?

    Is there somewhere still knocking out these recordings? Some of them were fairly recent hits...

    I remember back in the late 90s / early 2000s seeing these kind of 'popular at the time' cover versions on cds.
    See, you don't get those haircuts on your mp3s.

      You can experience the same horror in my local Co-op also.

      It's slightly embarrassing when you find yourself humming along and then realise you're humming along to a version of some pop song or other that's even worse than the original.

        B&Q also have these.

        Presumably it's the same story of only having to pay PRS but not PPL fees.
