Matt Cardle "When We Collide"

Here's the single version of X Factor winner Matt Cardle's new single, "When We Collide." Released early this year by Biffy Clyro as "Many of Horror (When We Collide)," it's a song I like quite a bit. Cardle sounds pretty good it on. Reminds me a bit of James Blunt. The arrangement is not much different than the original version until the end, where they throw in the obligatory final chorus key jump. Always a welcome gesture in a big pop song. I guess I don't mind this, but mostly because I really like the original song. It's certainly a much better choice than giving Joe McElderry a Miley Cyrus song to sing.



Here's the original Biffy Clyro version:

and hurrah, it's actually doing quite well on the charts :) As is the Biffy Clyro version. It continues to grow on me. I still think simon gave one direction the best track with forever young...

I must say I am lovin' this. Definitely better than the crappy The Climb last year.

Paul - I hope you had a good trip. It's fun to see Biffy Clyro's original version in the top 10. The song should've done that when it was first released.

rcLoy - Agreed. That was the worst choice victory single ever.
