Well yes, but Jim was asked to remix the Westlife version, so he definitely knows to potentially major versions are out there. If they chart well, it would be a coup for him for two reasons: 1) if they hit a consecutive No. 1 & 2, LOL, has that ever been done before? and 2) if it beats \"Blind As A Bat\" Jim gets the last laugh because Meat should have waited for him.

But that is off the topic

He seems to be O.K. with it. He seems to be O.K. with a lot of these things, so I wouldn\'t be surprised if he just simply said \"look, you can do it, but I want to do it here too\"

Maybe The Dream Engine will sing at the concert?
