|If you've been near HMV in the last 3 years you'll be familiar with the My Inspiration campaign. Now they've released an album to tie in with it...
|Some people can sing like no one else. Some are poets, who can tell the most incredible stories. 'My Inspiration' is about the artists we love, sharing with us the lyrics and songs that have inspired them. The journey began over three years ago, when David Bowie became the first artist to take part, selecting Syd Barrett's 'Gigolo Aunt' as his inspiration. Since that time many of our greatest icons and best new artists have also featured.
HMV has now taken this idea a step further by inviting some of our most exciting new talent such as Florence and the Machine, VV Brown and Gary Go as well as more established stars including Girls Aloud and Stereophonics to record for us their own personal version of a song that has inspired them.
The result is the my inspiration album - a fantastic collection of covers of inspirational songs, many of which are exclusive to HMV and are only being heard for the first time.

2. Beggin' [Frankie Valli And The Four Seasons]-Saturdays
