We've been banging on about how amazing Fyfe Dangerfield's cover of Girls Aloud megahit "Call The Shots" is for quite some time, so the fact that it's taken until now to get an mp3 up on the blog is somewhat unforgivable. Fyfe played NYC a few weeks back though and fully reignited our love for the track, swiftly helping us to realize the err of our ways in sitting on this track for so long. The Girls Aloud original is one of the better mega mainstream singles of the past decade (right up there bumping shoulders with "Rude Boy" and "Ms. Jackson") and boasts a Xenomania-penned topline that's one of the best in recent pop history, so the source material is pretty strong in itself, making Dangerfield's ownership of the track on his cover all the more remarkable. The mp3 below is a live recording from a recent BBC Radio 2 session, and while we still pray for the day a proper studio recording of the cover becomes a reality, this is pretty damn great for now.
