Did anyone catch this on the Swedish STV channel?
If you didn't, you can watch it on their Web TV (the link is at the bottom of the page)

I want your opinions, what do you think? IMO it's not really that bad, but it could be a lot better if they didn't try to be so overly rock as they're so disco themselves..

Bit of a glaring omission. You need realplayer to view the web video. I'm not installing it just for that. Is there no downloadable video?

Peace,
Adam.

Yeah, I saw it.

Don't think they were really good.

It's used in a commercial for potatochips in Holland.
Don't like it.

That's another band performing a song called IWIA but I don't believe it's Queen's IWIA.

About this cover version: I don't like the female voice, the 'pop sound' and the (Hot Space) horns. Why cover a song which is already perfect?

Sorry Adam, this is the only link I know of.. unless someone has it on kazaa already or something..

And yes, this is a totally different song than the Pringles advertisement's I Want it All.. Nothing to do with Queen, though in the ad it might sound a little like Queen's IWIA. I think this was just a one off for the TV show..

As I said, Alcazar is too disco (or pop if you like) to perform this wonderful, very rock song, but I still think it's not as bad as Five or Pink and co. and their versions of We Will Rock You.

Interesting version, nice funky arrangement.
Thanks for the link.

Wasn't really my cup of tea 'singing'-wise.
