10 Recent Cover Song Obsessions
In no particular order. Because I'm indecisive AF and there are probably more.
- 1.Drive All Night - Glen HansardHad the pleasure of seeing Glen and EV in Las Vegas a few years ago. This brought that crashing back.
- 2.Halo - Seth Avett & Joe KwonCould not be more in love with the Avetts. http://youtu.be/6ZBVq_lw_MY
- 3.Hallelujah - Jeff BuckleyBecause.
- 4.One More Night - Scott AvettJust sweet. http://youtu.be/NBlrbFYfRkQ
- 5.Rainbow Connection - Weezer w/Hayley Williams💗🐸🌈
- 6.Somebody to Love - Queen with Fun.At the i Heart Radio concert. K. Technically not a cover. But pretty damn close. And watching Nate Ruess get the "Holy shit this is Brian May" look on his face. Adorbs.
- 7.Blurred Lines - Vampire WeekendBecause you haven't lived until you've heard Ezra Koenig rap - "So, hit me up when you pass through. I'll give you something big enough to tear your ass in two." From BBC One Radio Live Lounge - haven for wonderful and random covers. Sadly the video seems to have disappeared from their YouTube page, but audio is still here - http://youtu.be/P5TAoW3u6oY.
- 8.Summertime Sadness - Miley CyrusAnother BBC One gem
- 9.A Whiter Shade of Pale - Annie LennoxThe original is haunting. As is this.
- 10.Songbird - Naya RiveraIt may be Glee but she has a stunning voice and delivers an absolutely gripping version of this song. Gorgeous in every way.
