MNEK's Cover Of Kylie Minogue's "Put Yourself In My Place" Is Pretty Decent

PopJustice has alerted the music masses to the fact that 17-year-old Londoner MNEK (who penned The Saturdays' "All Fired Up") has done a complete reworking of Kylie Minogue's 1994 single "Put Yourself In My Place."

To put some perspective in its place, MNEK was born on November 9, 1994, which just happens to be five days before Kylie's original "Put Yourself In My Place" single was released in the UK.

Note that you can download MNEK's moody version via the SoundCloud player above.

At any rate, this is probably one of my top five all-time favorite jams by Minogue. It was the second single off her fifth, self-titled album (after "Confide In Me"), and the song scandalously just missed the UK Top 10 by peaking at #11.

Alas, "Put Yourself In My Place" was left off the compilation The Best Of Kylie Minogue, which was released yesterday here in the States, and two weeks ago in the UK (where it also hit #11, on the album chart.)
