Shayne Ward's New Single Makes You Long For The Chipmunk Voice In "If That's OK With You"

Shayne Ward's lucky he makes everyone wanna slam their body down and wind it all around, because his commonplace new single sure ain't no "No U Hang Up." In fact, "Breathless" would have been more appropriately titled "Lifeless" (although the fluttering handclaps are nice). Anyway, Shayne performed the ballad on X Factor last week, and it becomes available as a single in the U.K. Monday.

Personally, I think Rami and the rest of the Swedish Maritone gang must've been in a Häagen-Dazs-induced coma when they banged this one out. The only good part is when Shayne lets out a Patti LaBelle-esque falsetto shriek two-thirds the way in. That made me spit out my Cheerios.

    "If we had babies they would have your eyes, I would fall deeper watching you give life"


    That has to be the worst lyric of the decade. Words cannot describe how inspid this pile of shit is.

    The song's melody is nice but my God could they not get a thesaurus to change some of the words? I agree with Mike about the above lyric-absolutely the worst thing I've heard since Spice Girls' "headlines".

    AND one more thing, is it me or is this video a total déjà vu moment? Its like "u hang up" and "stand by me" combined. Its going to take Shayne giving me a good bounce personally to keep my interest... and I totally encourage him to try.

    Oh so much to catch up on, i am gonna take liberties and write it all here. The killers bsides collection is indeed very good and quite the listen. I'm still not really feeling the whole Spice Girls thing, but I think Headlines is growing on me. Shayne is most bounceable, which is why I am tolerating this single. I am hoping the album is more poppy fun of OK rather than less than inspired stuff like this and U Hang Up

    "You must have been sent from heaven to earth to save me. You're like an angel"

    These lyrics are touch, people. He's not bad to look at though.

    Mike, you are a man who gets right to the point, and someone should be pointing a sharp object at whomever greenlit this trash.

    Jump! Around!, yes, it's like Team Ward had one idea and are milking it to death. I think this even sounds like "No U Hang Up: The Dentist Office Reception Area Version"...zzzzzz. Film that bounce session and XTube it, will ya?

    Pablo, I'm still gonna give Shayne's album a try, too... but I'll have you test the waters. Lemme know how it is.

    LOL@GP, no, he's not bad to look at, and he probably looks even better when you're on your knees. Ba-zing!

    I started to doze off, but thankfully the Cheerios-shriek (as it shall forever be known) woke me up!

    I think this song is refreshingly original and his eyes are amazing, you guys slaggin him off are all pathetic like you could do any better!!! He won the X Factor and beat Andy Abraham by 1.2% so he cant be that bad plus the whole of Manchester absolutely loves him, he's working on his third album and will always be an inspiration to me, anyone that slags him off really needs to get a grip... keep up the good work shayne I will play your songs for years to come x<3
