When it comes to Comic Relief anything goes. This includes Bryn & Nessa, Tom Jones and Robin Gibb, covering “Barry” Islands in The Stream. Using cheesy Welsh accents, a very long 9 minute video, and random outbursts of Tom Jones these guys manage to murder the Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton song.
Granted, the song wasn’t very good to start with, so the cover couldn’t help but be worse. Still, at least the charity single is half in tune compared to Peter Kay’s outbursts.
Tom Jones manages to give the song a little slice of credibility, taking it from that comedy cover, to the comedy cover with an actual singer.
Overall, people should buy this song only because its for charity. Otherwise, avoid it like the plague.
