You did nothing wrong, and should never surrender to jerks. Better to spite them!

No worries, not asking you to change anything. My initial comment was more to let other readers know what the "cover" actually was.

So now we know how to keep at least a degree of harmony. All it takes is for all the native English speakers and those who are doing their best with it to check their spelling, grammar, definitions and syntax so that we don’t disappoint those who think WE need help.
If I thought what you’d think I wouldn’t even be here.

I loved it :D Watching those cute little ones alone was worth it. Also discovered a new Sophiie song "Bittersweet". Unfortunately she is virtually unknown in Turkey so I am not aware of her repertoire in detail but that song was a nice one.

And some people are born just to complain about anything, about EVERYTHING. I keep this kind of people at bay. They suck your energy; actually they feed ON your energy.

Thank you for posting the link.

For a sheer beautiful heart string pulling wonderful song, seek out “Unrequited” from her “Familia” album. Bought a lump to my throat.

The vast majority of covers don't reinvent the song, you donut.

That's pretty subjective, you free-range rude.

What's objective is that, as a general rule, covers do not use elements of the original recording (here she copied at least the original intro as is).

I'm not really sure it is a karaoke version though. At the beginning I though it was, but I think it sounds like a slightly different arrangement?

I wouldn't consider myself a fan of Sophie Ellis-Bextor, but I do like some of her hits. Just don't know enough of her stuff. I'd quite like to see her do a proper release of a PSB cover, or maybe an original song written by PSB. I feel like both Neil and Sophie EB have a similarity in that they're not the most powerful vocalists, but have very unique and recognisable singing voices.

Yes of course it would not be the real original instrumental. (None has officially been released. The leaked multitrack lacks some stems e.g. the drum kit. And it looks like Sophie isn't close to PSB enough to get it). Therefore the track is apparently reconstructed. Some elements e.g. the intro are just copied, others are created from scratch.

Well, this thread went sideways fast for no reason. Is nobody entitled to an opinion on this forum?

Ah, yes, good ol' free speech, the phrase abused only when someone is awful.
