New: Hopeless covers Thompson Twins’ “Lies, Lies, Lies”

I do not know how Hopless decided to cover Thomspon Twins but the elaborate back story he made up about his decision is pretty excellent. This is what the press release with the song read “Due to my pending trial I am not legally able to discuss this whole story. What I can say is that both Tom Bailey (the white guy from the Thompson Twins) and I were both staying at the Dorchester. I was performing in London that weekend so I decided to slum it for a couple of days. From what we know now, Tom was staying at the hotel with his wife. Apparently he saw me walking in the lobby when he tried to approach me for whatever reason. My security detail said he looked like a threat and then madness ensued. Lets just say Tom was rushed to the doctor, doctor; love was not what he was feeling. In his honor I decided to cover one of his songs, Lies, Lies, Lies. Unlike my ABC, Tears Are Not Enough rework, I obviously did not have the opportunity to work with the original artist because my crew beat him up.” Despite the back story, I would not have posted the cover unless the track was hot. I have to admit, it does not bare much resemblance to the original but I think that is what makes it good. Check it out!
