I'm currently hearin: U2 - "Vertigo (Radenka Power Mix)"

I remember not long after "Vertigo" was released to radio back in September, there was some guy who did a live appearance on some British radio show and did a really cool acoustic arrangement of the song...it was some guy who no one in the States has ever heard of, which is why his name is escaping me now. Anyone know what I'm talking about? (or better yet, where I can find it...my friend doesn't believe me that the song could work acoustically, and I need to prove him wrong)

To prove him wrong, play the Temple Bar remix.

Okay, true...but that didn't really "work" in a musical sense, it was just kind of a joke, although a highly entertaining one.

This version that I heard was quite well played, and done seriously...I remember I didn't really like the way the singer sang it, but I liked the acoustic arrangement he did. But it didn't have a banjo. ;)

You're probably thinking of the version Lemar did, I think it was for Jo Whiley's show - it was on the Radio 1 website at the time. I was pleasantly surprised at how decent it was... he was one of the rejects from Fame Academy (the BBC's version of Pop Idol), which doesn't usually bode well, but I must admit he has a reasonable amount of talent from what I've heard. Don't know if there's an MP3 of the Vertigo performance though, I was never able to save a copy from the website, despite my best efforts.

Ah, no wonder I'd never heard of him. Someone's gotta have an mp3 of it...if it's anything like American Idol there's probably 500 fan sites for the guy already...
