Wasn't there some kind of controversy over this song (not his version)? I remember discussing it on the old Almighty Records forum...but what was it?
Plagiarism, it's similar to this Icelandic song

I doubt the Almighty discussion was about an obscure Icelandic song.
I'm not sure but maybe the comments were something like a "Wind Beneath My Wings" knock-off. And also that it was the kind of schmaltz that would only appeal to housewives (not my opinion, I hasten to add)

Aztec Camera vs The Lightning Seeds


ACvLS.jpg


Aztec Camera

ac.jpg


Aztec Camera were a Scottish pop/new wave band formed by Roddy Frame, the group's singer, songwriter, and only consistent member. Formed in 1980, Aztec Camera released a total of six albums: High Land, Hard Rain (1983), Knife (1984), Love (1987), Stray (1990), Dreamland (1993) and Frestonia (1995). The band garnered popular success for the songs "Oblivious", "Somewhere in My Heart" and "Good Morning Britain" (a duet with former Clash guitarist Mick Jones).


On 21 January 1985, alongside Orange Juice, Wooden Tops and Everything But The Girl, Aztec Camera raised an estimated £18,000 for the striking miners of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) through a fundraising event at the Brixton Academy—the year-long strike concluded six weeks later.







Lightning Seeds

The Lightning Seeds are an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1989 by Ian Broudie (vocals, guitar, producer), formerly of the bands Big in Japan and Original Mirrors. Originally a studio-based solo project for Broudie, the Lightning Seeds expanded into a touring band following Jollification (1994). The group experienced commercial success throughout the 1990s and are well known for their single "Three Lions", a collaboration with David Baddiel and Frank Skinner which reached No. 1 in the UK in 1996 and 1998. The single once again reached No. 1 in the UK in 2018
