A senior songstress is releasing a new album; her first release after her much-publicised foray into acting. Satirist TV Smith speculates on the choice of cover versions and adapted lyrics...

01 How Deep Is Your Syringe
(adapted from "How Deep Is Your Love" originally performed by The Bee Gees)
Lyrics Excerpt:
"How deep is your syringe, I really need to know.
Cause they're living in a world of fools,
Breaking me down, when they could not find a trace..."

02 Ex-Superstar
(adapted from "Superstar" originally performed by Karen Carpenter)
Lyrics Excerpt:
"Don't you remember you told me you loved me baby?
You said you'd be coming back to the record shops again baby.
Baby, baby, baby, baby, oh, baby, I love you, I really do..."

03 It's Raining Mail
(adapted from "It's Raining Men" originally performed by The Weather Girls)
Lyrics Excerpt:
"It's raining mail! Oh best nya! - It's raining mail! Alamak!
I'm gonna go out to learn how to hide my IP.
In her pants she will then pee.
It's raining mail! Oh best nya!
It's raining mail! Even attachments!
Long, big, spam and all
Rough and tough and strong and mean..."

04 How Bizarre
(adapted from "How Bizarre" originally performed by OMC)
Lyrics Excerpt:
Suddenly red-blue lights flash me from above.
"Loud voice booming: Please step out of the drain!
Probably preaching words of comfort, I just hide my eyes.
The policeman taps his shades, "Is this a Mercedes 450?"
How bizarre, How bizarre, How bizarre..."

05 Video Cam Killed The Radio Star
Lyrics Excerpt:
(adapted from "Video Killed The Radio Star" originally performed by The Bugles)
In my mind and in my car, I can't rewind I've gone too far.
Oh-a-aho oh, Oh-a-aho oh. Video cam killed the radio star.
Video cam killed the radio star. I'm a radio star.
Video cam killed the radio star..."

06 They Paved Paradise
(adapted from "Big Yellow Taxi" originally performed by Joni Mitchell)
Lyrics Excerpt:
"They paved paradise, screwed up a parking lot,
With streetlights, a busybody and a sweeping cam.
Don't it always seem to go, that you don't know what you've got,
Till it's gone, They paved paradise and screwed up a parking lot..."

07 Kamera
(adapted from "Kerana" originally performed by The Alleycats)
Lyrics Excerpt:
Kamera kau, ku masih di sini. Kamera kau, ku bisa menangis.
Dan kamera kau yang menghancurkan, Ku tiada berteman.
Terkenang wajah mu aku pilu..."

08 Beat Me
(adapted from "Beat It" originally performed by Michael Jackson)
Lyrics Excerpt:
"You have to show them that you’re really not scared
You’re playin’ with your life, this ain’t no truth or dare
They’ll kick you, then they beat you, then they’ll tell you it’s fair
So beat me, cos you wanna be bad.
Just beat me, beat me, beat me, and then beat it..."

09 Siti's Love Songs
(adapted from "Silly Love Songs" originally performed by Paul McCartney)
Lyrics Excerpt:
"You’d think that people would have had enough of Siti's love songs.
But I look around me and I see it isn’t so.
Some people wanna fill the world with Siti's love songs..."
