Dave!Meanwhile, on Rock Star: INXS... In a moment of utter obviousness, Jordis was the one selected to reprise her stunning performance of The Man Who Sold the World from last night's show. I've saved it on my TiVo, and must have listened to it a dozen times now. It's as if I've never heard the song before (even though both the original Bowie version and Nirvana cover were both great). Once Jordis Unga sang it, she owned it for me.

Hauntingly beautiful.


I'd buy the song, but the only place you can get it from is the suck-ass MSN Music store. No surprise, since MSN is sponsoring the show... but still. I can only hope that either A) Somebody wakes up and decides to release the song on the worlds most popular online service, namely the iTunes Music Store. Or, B) If they don't, somebody with access to the MSN Music store will strip the lame-ass DRM from the track and put it someplace where I can get it as an MP3.

And, before the assclowns at the RIAA decide to come down on me for saying that, it's not STEALING if you won't let me BUY IT! Seriously, Mac users can't access MSN Music, so don't bust my balls with your stupid shit for having to resort to less desirable methods of obtaining the music I want.

I know this sounds horrible... but I find myself secretly hoping that Jordis DOESN'T get chosen to front INXS. After what I've seen, it's almost as if they would hold her back. I want her to go out on her own, find her own voice, and release music that she's passionate about, as opposed to singing things INXS wants her to. The idea of an entire album of music as great as The Man Who Sold the World gives me chills.

That being said, Brandon really should have been the one booted off the island. Is it just me, or does he have -zero- melody in his voice? Perhaps with further coaching, he can improve, but right now it's almost painful.

UPDATE: Well... I step away from my Mac for an hour, and no less than a dozen people are emailing me with offers to help out. I'm ever so grateful to you all. It would seem Jordis has many, many fans. Heaven only knows what she'll bring next week.

    First, I have never seen the word ‘assclowns’ used in a sentence before, and I must say I love it!
    Second, I hate mac discrimination, how they get away with creating a show and extend it to the web for only a select group of PC owners is beyond me
    Third, I wish I TiVo’ed this show. darn

    Hello Jordis fans. She is amazing. I wonder if anyone captured her original performance of “the man who sold the world” in mpeg or similar format. Please let me know if there is a location you know of to download that performance. Thanks.

    I agree with everything said here. I am a big Bowie fan and have to say he wrote this song for Jordis. We should however give a shout out to the man who wrote the song. This may have been one of the David Bowies best written songs of his. It has amazing musical changes and increadibly meanifull lyrics which touch both the heart and the mind. Kudos to David Bowie and to Jordis Unga for her brilliant interpretation of this unique and powerfull song.

    I’m glad you said that about INXS holding Jordis back. She’s so young and SO talented, it’d be a shame to have her front a band where she couldn’t be the lone star that she deserves to be.

  5. SAR says:

    Yo Guys just go here to get the music video of Jordis singing “The Man Who Sold the World”

    Then Get WM Recorder 10:

    Cracks are all over the web for it, then RIP the stream. Yes I did it, and now I have a nice music video to watch, WoOt

    Now tell me ya LOVE ME!

  6. Be wary of downloading a WM Recorder crack. These all contain Spyware.

    I recommend just buying the software for $29.95 – it will save you hours of time cleaning up your PC, and besides, WM Recorder is a great little program.

    Jordis Baby girl you ROCK. Is it just me, Damn.
    She’s beautiful. Not just her singing but you can tell she has a beautiful soul.

    Life is what she brought to those old songs!!!

    How about us in little ol New Zealand, how can we access MSN music-it seems we are not worthy of access to the amazing Jordis
