Liam Gallagher may be taking Oasis sans his brother with him for a new band under a different moniker, but I’m not so sure that Liam can avoid making a fool of himself without Noel’s songwriting chops in tow. Conversely, Noel’s vocals couldn’t hold a candle to those of his brother. Perhaps we’ve found a simple fix for that.
Pop star Leona Lewis performed Oasis’ Heathen Chemistry single “Stop Crying Your Heart Out” on BBC Radio 2’s Ken Bruce Show recently and the result provides a great testament to both Noel’s songwriting prowess and Lewis’ ability to adapt her trained voice to music from other genres in an honest, inspired way.
The other songs on Lewis’ second album don’t come close to the quality of her breakout hit “Bleeding Love,” IMO, but this cover song isn’t too far off. Watch what would’ve made a great first single from Lewis’ Echo here or embedded below:
