Hi peeps,

Yeah i know, shocking isn't it eh ??, it's on his new album which was released yesterday, just hope that his record company don't decide to release it, that would scupper the UB's hopes a bit i think.

oh shit!.......bad timing or what

I reckon UB's will be the better version anyhow & he may not release it as a single

I really like him and was SOOOOooooo pleased he won .

Doesnt even sound like the same song.

:confused:

But the little bit i just heard was really good.

SORRY But im not gonna lie about it.

NO WAY NEAR as good as the UB song , but it doesnt sound the same, different lyrics ?

MAYBE Its a diff song with the same name ?

Hawaii has a singer named Pati who also covered this song - unfortunately, they're playing his version on the radio now. As much as Hawaii loves UB40, I don't know if they'll play both doing the same song. Also, in Honolulu, they only seem to play songs that are sold here, so unless WYFF is released here, I'm not sure if anything will get played. At least some of the other islands have sense and play songs from Homegrown.

If you want to hear Pati's version, its here - #12.....

It's no where near as good as UB40's cover, they have given it a new life. I don't think Steve did it any justice like UB40 have.

Infact I have never heard a bad UB40 cover.

in my opinion i think ub40 and Pati are good at that tune as long as its reggae music style, cause reggae sounds sexy.

number 1 is ub40
2nd is ub40.

I BUY ANYTHING ME ... If it sounds half decent.
But only have 1 fave group. Which is why im here and not on the steve brookstein website ( if there is one ? ) Maybe i should design one if there isnt :p

Im sure that when peeps here Ali's golden sexy velvet toned voice singing this song, not even steve can spoil that for him.
Id be SHOCKED if ali felt threatened in any way shape or form.

Aye wat the f... you guys on about at least these blokes are having a go stiff sht if they ain't as good as UB40...

The Manhattans Version of Let's Just Kiss And Say Good By is the bomb, anyone who is doing a version of this song is paying homage to a good tune no matter who the guy is, these guys go on these shows bare there sole for the whole world to see coz there trying to make it in something they like doing talent or not they need a f'n medal for standing up there...

It's a long way to the top if ya wan't to rock and roll, and if ya wan't to do the reggae sometimes you pay in blood...

Just had a listen to all the clips from his album and I love this guys voice!!
Can't believe how much like Luther Vandross he sounds!! Love Luther. Never seen the show this guy Steve was on..but I presume it was pop idol or fame academy or something?? Anyway..I think he has done a great SOUL version of KISS A.S.G and has chosen some fantastic, classic songs :D

PS: Dance with my Father is one of the most beautiful songs graemlins/love.gif love it graemlins/love.gif

11th May 2005, 12:07 PM
i dont have a problem with him doing the song its a free country, my main concern is with it on his album what will this do for the ubies they are slated by the press for being a cover band and here you have them releasing kiss and say goodbye just after hes released his album with it on.Is his going to bring them good or bad exposure????
