3.5 out of 5
An absolutly beautiful song. I did not expect Shannon Noll to release a duet with someone, and least of all, one with Natalie Bassignthiwaighte. I heard this on the radio and I couldn't believe it was Natalie that was singing when I found out. It's so different compared to the way she sings in Rogue Trader's songs, but still marvelous. Great vocals, tunes, everything. This is an excellent song. Shannon with Natalie, I did not see that coming, but it's great, absolutly great.
If you haven't heard the original Peter Gabriel & Kate Bush version then do yourself a favour and check it out too. I prefer the original, but this is a good cover version, it sounds good AND it's for the Beyond Blue organisation.
About Natalie Bassingthwaighte
Although initially known as an Australian actress and television personality, Natalie Bassingthwaighte launched a music career after gaining national recognition as Izzy Hoyland, a character on the long-running Australian soap opera Neighbors. Bassingthwaighte ditched the acting gig to join the dance outfit Rogue Traders in 2004, serving as lead vocalist during the group's most successful period. After appearing on two platinum-selling albums, she left Rogue Traders in 2008 to focus on her solo career. Bassingthwaighte embraced a more pop-oriented style on her solo debut, 1000 Stars, which debuted atop the Australian charts upon its release in February 2009. ~ Andrew Leahey
