The Skin Archive is fully supporting the attempts to thwart the Evil Simon Cowell and his band of ludicrous manufactures pop dogs form attaining the Xmas Number 1 slot. I ask all Skindex readers to buy at least one, if not two downloads to prevent this travesty form happening.
The Facebook Group with all the knowledge:
Following the rather depressing news that this year’s X factor finalist will be covering Leonard Cohen’s beautiful ‘Hallelujah,’ I think everyone should download the Jeff Buckley version, instead of buying the inevitably soulless version churned out by Simon Cowell’s Crimbo flash in the pan.
This is not a group intended to make cruel or derogatory remarks about any participants in this years X factor, but if you love Buckley’s version, let’s make sure everyone forgets the pale imitation as quickly as possible.
We can make this work, and make a huge statement against the barrage of cynical manufactured pop dirtying up our charts. I am willing to download this version the week the X factor version comes out, and I know others will be too.
To make this as easy as possible we will post the download links, but make sure you WAIT UNTIL the 15th… (many thanks to Kevin Adams)
