I you follow me on Twitter (here) you probably know that The Saturdays' Missing You isn't exactly my favourite song of the year. In fact I might have used the word "crapfest" to describe this boring, not-really-uptempo-not-really-a-ballad disappointing single. In fact I think the problem lies in the production. It wants to sound modern but it sounds awfully dated and cheesy. Frankie's vocals sure don't help either.
ANYWAY. Supercute UK band Lawson covered the song and posted it on YouTube, and guess what? They showed that with the right treatment, it actually is a great pop song. Ryan's subtle vocals along with the acoustic rendition make it really enjoyable and prove once again that music is the winner here, readers.
You can hear The Sats' acoustic version here. It's not better in any way. Come on girls, now release Higher and all will be right in the world!
