Listen To This: Irresistibly Charming

| Filed under: AnglophiliaListen To ThisDiana Vickers

We tried really hard not to like this song! But at some point we just stopped fighting it and surrendered to the alterna-pop beauty that is Once.

Yes, Diana Vickers got her break on the X Factor and sonically this may be derivative of other British female acts on the scene right now.

But this song is major win!

AND… it's gone to #1 in the UK!

Check out Once by Diana Vickers (below)!

    English pop music SUCKS to no end. This is just another example.



  2. 2

    Great vocal chops



  3. 3

    Another one of "those" female voices. So hard to say who this sounds like because so many sound like this. Feist, maybe?



  4. 4

    Perez i do generally like you but you really are a pretentious asshole when it comes to music. you "tried really hard not to like this"? Who does that? Especially when Diana is the exact type of artist you love, you're just pissed cause you didnt 'discover' her! And anyone who knows anything about Diana Vickers would not that she is not copying anyones music, her voice sounds like that when she talks also and she is unique and a breath of fresh air!



  8. 8

    hate it



  9. 9

    I love it!



  10. 10

    Perez seriously this is a new low to be promoting this rubbish single from a UK Z lister!

    I liked her on the X Factor but I think that was just because he offered something a little bit different on a TV show that usually produces the same kind of rubbish, she was a different kind of rubbish and that was part of her appeal. Away from the context of the X Factor, her voice is just irritating. I don't even think this is a good song. It only went to number one because of excessive promotion, she's been on every tv/radio show these past few weeks (good onher for that though, she is working hard) and it's all that radio one seem to play (they probably have some kind of deal with her record label). It's just another example of manipulation by the music industry.

    I do wish her well though, she seems a decent lass.

    Re: celebcritc

    It s not a Uk z list
    She is number one
    She has to win instead of Alexandra BURKE xfactor 2008
    But the spanish singer did the maximum on tv and everywhere to ask her fans to vote for Alexandra and Alexandra won
    She is such a talent
    I love her
    I m very happy that she signed a contract with a major.



  14. 14

    Diana VICKERS was discovered by Xfactor
    But she is not making money for Simon COWELL

    She signed with another major company. because she was eliminated, I would love seeing her version of HALLILUYAH wow.



  15. 15

    since watching her on x factor i'm surprised that people haven't realised that her voice is ridiculous and she can't sing. she sounds like she's singing while wearing a cumbersome retainer. one word… ANNUNCIATE. also, i don't get the wisened old woman look she seems to go for. what's with the claw and the terrible posture. she's like a witch.



  16. 16

    LOVE DIANA VICKERS : )



  17. 17

    Re: Rouge 23 – AGREED



  24. 24

    i actually really like diana i know a lot of people are annoyed by her though
    Re: ClaraB – haha we invented 'pop' music, loser



  25. 25

    garbage with a capital bage.



  26. 26

    My ears bled after hearing her on X-Factor. She only got as far as she did on a sympathy vote. This SUCKS



  27. 27

    I admit it is quite catchy, but she can't sing for toffee! She sounds like a strangled cat, just rather strange… I don't think she's capable of holding a note.



  28. 28

    Love it!!



  29. 29

    the thing about diana is she doesn't MAKE her voice like that, its the way she talks aswell, other female artists with that type of voice deliberately go out of their way to get their voice to sound like that, diana's voice is original. i hate this kind of music, i'm not a fan of her, but i'm just not being totally fucking biased. i'm giving the truth not an opinion



  30. 30

    what are you being paid to for this one go listen to this seventeen year old girl"" Sky Ferreira """sing Mike Snows Animal """that is singing she can out sing anybody you have on here >>>>>>>i guess she hasnt paid you yet>>>> CHECK THIS YOUNG GIRL OUT SKY FERREIRA



  31. 31

    She's different but in the world of pop music singing while doing a handstand would be different, it doesn't mean it will work. She has a co-writing credit on this song with Cathy Dennis (Toxic) but I suspect the record company have done a 'Robbie Williams' and given her input on one line of lyrics so that they can make her seem more credible. The marketplace is getting crowded with all of these people who can't write and there arn't enough good songs to go around, that's why the turnover rate of these acts is so quick and why any decent singer-song writer can easily trump these small fry.



  32. 32

    Listening to her sing actually hurts my ears - I can't believe she's number 1 here in the UK!! She also does this really annoying thing with her hands when she sings … really really really don't like her!!!



  33. 33

    why must her hair be fucked up in every picture of her?!



  34. 34

    Ugh why can't people accept other people's taste in music? Stop taking offense to other people's taste in music and stop thinking that your taste in music is the only one thats right. I think this song is really good and just cause you hate perez doesn't mean you should insult Diana. So eff off people.
