The idea of this potential Number One single is that everyone who has EVER been kicked off X‑Factor, Pop Idol, Popstars and the rest gets together in a massive CHOIR OF FAILURE (a 'quailure') for a huge orchestral rework of Snow Patrol's recently-appointed 'anthem of woe', 'Chasing Cars'.
It would be a cross between this:
And it would be Number One for eight centuries.
In the Band Aid-style video, every time someone appeared on screen to sing their song, their own particular tale of distress 'n' misfortune would flash up in big letters. 'DEAD DAD.' 'BATTLED CANCER.' 'ONCE DROPPED A CAKE.'
It's all very easy to be snooty and hilarious about this because after a while you become slightly numb to the parade of miserably wheeled-out sob stories but if you will indulge us for one moment we have to say that this performance from last weekend, wherein Rachel Hylton reimagined 'Chasing Cars', was truly extraordinary and made us cry a little bit.
We know it's probably not the done thing with recovering drug addicts etc but we'd love to go out on a three day bender with Rachel Hylton. We bet she would 'really give finding booze after 11pm 110%' and 'really make that 4am argument with a minicab driver her own'.
