Hi there everyone! I hope you are having a lovely Tuesday! This month Tune In Tuesday is extra fun because we are doing Cover Edition! I absolutely love finding covers of songs that I can’t seem to get enough of. Today’s songs are a mix of some of my favorite covers and I am beyond excited to share them with you. I hope you enjoy!
Skinny Love by Gavin Mikhail (Original by Bon Iver)
I am a bit torn on which one I like more, the cover or the original. I think I am just going to have to call this one a draw because they are both pretty freaking amazing.
Price Tag by The Wombats (Original by Jessie J)
I am a huge fan of the Mashup Mondays that Billboard used to do. It was a fun way of seeing a different side to bands that I love. I love The Wombats something fierce and the fact that they can sing a song that I loathe and actually make me love it just shows how talented they are.
Dreams by Augustana (Original by Fleetwood Mac)
This is another Mashup Monday song I came across a looong time ago. I have been a Fleetwood Mac fan since I was a little girl. That is the stuff I grew up on so it’s only natural that I love their stuff even now. I was a bit worried at first to see a band I love (Augustana) do such a well-known song, especially one that is among my favorites but I think they did an incredible job with it. I love that they kept their “Augustana tone” to it.
Sweet Nothing by Corey Gray & Madilyn Bailey (Original by Calvin Harris & Florence Welch)
I love everything about this version of the song. I liked the original okay but there’s just something about the cover that I LOVE!
Friday I’m In Love by Scars On 45 (Original by The Cure)
This is one of my all-time favorite covers. Why you ask? Well first off, The Cure is one of my go-to bands. Their music never fails when it comes to putting a smile on my face. Secondly, I adore Scars on 45 to absolute pieces. Seriously. I have found myself sharing their music here on the blog time and time again but I have to say, this is pretty high up there as far as a favorite of their songs. I love that they slowed the song down and put their own spin on it. It almost sounds like a totally different song!
