She covered Elton John’s ‘Your Song’ like a hiccupping kitten at the royal wedding, but this is more La Roux going for the kill (a good thing) than monarchy-pleasing waft. Another cover, yes, but with Tinie Tempah angstily snapping, “I don’t even know this fucking woman in my bed”. What do you think of THAT, K Middy?
