E.T. -cover- (Conor Maynard)

He may sound like he’s stolen the vocal chords from Bruno Mars or Ne-Yo but UK home-grown Conor Maynard, like so many others on YouTube, simply covers chart hits and puts them on his channel. The only difference… his material is actually releasable!

His voice just doesn’t match what you expect from a rather skinny, quiet, white boy from England. With clear R’n’B influences, Conor is a breath of fresh air… and at only 17, surely has a fabulous career in the music biz to look forward to.

Here, he sings a cover off Katy Perry's E.T.

- Hello, I am the beautiful Conor Maynard and I wanna bless your ears. As my vocal cords produce the sound that can only be matched by the wind as it gently caresses the trees and the ++++ rain forest.
- Hi, I'm Ed. We're gonna be doing ++++ ...
- Hush peasant! It's time for me to sing now.
... Oh no, it's Conor, this is my friend...
- Ed Stokes
- he shall be playing guitar for me in this cover today, off Kate Perry's E.T. Hope you enjoy it. Let's go.

You're so hypnotizing
Could you be the devil
Could you be an angel

Your touch magnetizing
Feels like I am floating
Leaves my body glowing

They say 'be afraid'
You're not like the others
Futuristic lover
Different DNA
They don't understand you

You're from a whole other world
A different dimension
You open my eyes
And I'm ready to go
Lead me into the light

Kiss me, kiss me
Infect me with your love and
Fill me with your poison

Take me, take me
I wanna be a victim
Ready for abduction

Girl, you're an alien
Your touch so foreign
It's supernatural
Extraterrestrial

You're so supersonic
Wanna feel your powers
Stun me with your laser
Your kiss is cosmic
Every move is magic

You're from a whole other world
A different dimension
You open my eyes
And I'm ready to go
Lead me into the light

Kiss me, kiss me
Infect me with your love and
Fill me with your poison

Take me, take me
I wanna be a victim
Ready for abduction

Girl, you're an alien
Your touch so foreign
It's supernatural
Extraterrestrial

BLESS= Bring great joy (happiness, pleasure) to.

AS= As the same time as, when, while.

MATCHED BY= Resemble, be similar.

CARESSES= To caress or to stroke is to gently touch affectionately, as if to show love.

GONNA= (coll.) Going to.

PEASANT= /pezənt/ A country person, especially the poor servant that worked the land of others.

SHALL= Will.

DEVIL= A spirit who is the incarnation of evil, opposing good. The Devil is Satan, but you may have many devils, which are the dark counterpart of the angels.

MAGNETIZING= Showing magnetic attraction. Metaphorically, something magnetizing is something that strongly attracts you, even against your will.

GLOWING= To glow is to send out a soft light.

DNA= (desoxyribonucleic acid), the strings inside a cell containing the genes which store all the information about a living creature. DNA is the language code which creates a particular and unique form of life, like the blueprints to make a building. A different DNA implies a different creature.

WHOLE= Complete.

DIMENSION= In the universe we know, there are 3 dimensions (height, width and deep), or 4 if we include time. But many scientists believe there might be more than 4 dimensions, leading to parallel universes (only theories). So if an alien comes from a different dimension, they come from another universe.

LEAD= Guide.

WANNA= (coll.) Want to.

ABDUCTION= Kidnap. If they abduct you, they carry you away by force, maybe because they want to ask for a ransom (they tell your family that they have to pay money if they want to see you alive again). We can also specifically use the term “abduction” (not “kidnap”) when talking about alien abduction. Some people believe aliens abduct people for some hours or days and take them into their spaceships to study their biology. Then, they are released again, maybe after erasing their memory of the event.

ALIEN= Foreigner, stranger, outsider (someone who is from a different place). But in modern English we often use the term “alien” referring to creatures from another planet, so it is the equivalent to the too long word “extraterrestrial”, also usually shortenened to E.T.

YOUR TOUCH SO FOREIGN= Your touch looks so different. Here, "touch" may mean the way you feel when you touch them, or the particular look or style they show.

EXTRATERRESTRIAL= From outside the earth, from another planet or outer space.

SUPERSONIC= Which can move faster than the sound.

STUN= To surprise, astound, shock or overwhelm.

The song has a science-fiction theme, and Katy admitted in an interview with Company magazine that outer space fascinates her. "E.T. is a metaphor about finding someone who is just obviously not from this world because how could they love me like this? Even though it's a metaphor, I'm very interested in all things futuristic. I mean, I complain every day that the Hoverport has still not been invented!" she said. "I think it's absolutely ridiculous. I look out into the sky and to the stars and I feel there is so much out there."
