Default Your fav Vyv song?

Was wondering, which is your fav original Vyv song??? and fav cover???

My fav original is... Random Man... hope she records/releases it SOON!!!! Has to be in her album!!!!!!!! Love it love it love it

I love all her covers but my fav is Yoshimi. Pure perfection!!!!!!!!! I just heard the original version for the first time recently (The Flamming Lips) and sounded so weird, Vyv's version is far better But 7 Nation Army is classic too!!

What about you all??

I don't have all of them, but never Leave You is just so witty, so that should be my choice.

(on a sidenote, the only good thing about Flaming Lips is that bell X1 used two lines of Do You Realise at the end of I'll See Your Heart... at their Other Voices session which helped a lot at making it the best moment of popular music history ever. That performance of that song is godly)

yeah my heart is with 'random man' too big time though i have to say 'she can't wait to get her hands on the inheritance' is catching up quickly..loving that song

but still my favourite part of vyv when she talks on stage..its just so funny so different than talking to her otherwise..i think she has stage freight continuously that's why..love how her words stumbling through her mad stories, bless her

she is a legend

After seeing her live tonight at cardiff, I think I could become quite a fan! I really like Inheritance, but I think Never Leave You is pretty great too!

Definitely 'random man on the motorway' and 'can't wait to get hands on inheritance', they are both very catchy and meaningful.

Vyv is awesome!!!!!!

Random Man, Inheritance and Never Leave You are my faves - they really show up her quirky fun side. I love that she doesn't take music too seriously and can have a lot of fun with it on stage.

random man, so sexy and witty

wish she's more popular, popular enough just like damo and lisa and not too much to be treated like celeb
