Craig David: Walking Away
You kinda miss the mad-ass performance poetry factor...
Sure, it's smooth and it's sultry and it comes with the obligatory clubby mixes. All told it's really rather good, but the Spice Girls have already taught us that if people like you doing one thing then, really, you're better off doing it rather than going off on a tangent. Having said this it's hardly a Scooch single, but you kinda miss the mad-ass performance poetry factor.
You'll have noticed that recent campaigns for Craig to keep his hat on - for he looks strange without it - have paid off, but 'Walking Away' would have been better if Oasis had covered it.
