Good News: Josh Dubovie's Final Version Of "That Sounds Good To Me" Sounds Good

Oh thank Christ Mike Stock re-jigged "That Sounds Good To Me," the 2010 UK Eurovision entry that Josh Dubovie will sing in Oslo next month at the song contest. When the 19-year-old warbled the tune (which was co-written/produced by Stock and Pete Waterman) last month on BBC's Your Country Needs You special, something was kind of missing—like anything remotely resembling a production from this decade (or the last), and Dubovie's ability to hit all the notes.

But after taking into consideration the criticism (and there was a LOT), Stock reworked the jam, and the final mix premiered today on BBC Radio 2.

And here 'tis:



I can get behind that. Because if Mike Stock and Pete Waterman are going to go out on a cheesefest like Eurovision, at least they ought to go out firing on all OTT pop cylinders.

    I like it. I feel like it's a little peak into what One True Voice would have done next :) Plus Josh is probably quite a good bounce, though maybe a little vanilla :P

    It's still not exactly top quality Stock/Waterman stuff though, is it? And lyrically the thing has just been phoned in both by Pete and Josh. I mean, fair play, they've gone all out to try and do something to polist this one up but I can't help thinking that Jemini had more to offer than this :(

    Paul, you can have Josh. He's waaaay too vanilla...not to mention young, you dirty old man!

    The Spider, oh, hell no it's not. When this whole Stock/Waterman Eurovision business first surfaced, I did a post where I hoped for the best -- i.e., another Sybil/"When I'm Good And Ready"!

    Dan, yes. And listen to it 5 times and you'll inevitably start singing along (and also have the damn thing completely memorized). That's a good thing, maybe?

    This still doesn't sound good to me. The production is horribly dated and the song itself sounds like a Scooch reject- yuck. I wish Stock would stop pissing all over his legacy.

    This is even worse than the other version. Dated 70s backing singers the punchiness in the wrong places and basically a horribly naff song headed for nil points

    There’s an all-Big Ten semifinal in the College Football Playoff. As christian louboutin shoes of now, anyway.

    The likelihood of Michigan and Ohio State facing each other in the Playoff is, of course, very louboutin outlet small. The hated christian louboutin uk rivals face off on Nov. wholesale nfl jerseys 26. Assuming neither team loses on nfl jerseys store Saturday, Nike Air Max 90 the winner will remain in the top four while the loser will Nike Air Max 2015 Shoes likely fall out.
