What would you sing on X Factor

I was musing on the way in this morning about why you tend to hear the same old guff on X-Factor week in week out.

I mean, in the 40 minutes I travelled to work this morning my iPod served up a wide selection of genres, artists and songs – we have a huge cultural legacy of music to draw on yet you just get people standing up and churning out Mariah Blarey or R ‘not suspicious in any way’ Kelly.

Besides, it’s noticable that the singers who step away from the norm seem to do better.

So, in the tradition of Warwick Blogs – what would you sing if you went on X Factor to impress the judges?

My choices would be:

1. John Cage – 4’33” – the perfect choice to show off my musical talents
2. Nick Cave – Staggerlee – one of the most violent nasty songs I’ve ever listened to
3. Julian Cope – Mik Mak Mok – gibberish, thus perfect for X Factor!
