Tune In Tuesday is a weekly feature in which bloggers get to showcase another one of their loves, music! This feature was originally created by Ginger over at GReads! but you can now find it here at Kate’s Tales of Books and Bands. If you would like to participate in this weekly feature, make a blog post showcasing a song (or a few!) and link up at the bottom of this post by clicking the cute blue guy! While you’re here make sure to check out all the other awesome blogs that have decided to participate!
Happy Tuesday everyone! For those of you just joining us, Tune In Tuesday is a bit special this month because we are all sharing our favorite cover songs! If you have a cover song you would like to share, just make up a blog post featuring it and come back here to link up and check out everyone else’s picks as well. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
This week I have a random mix of awesome. I hope you all enjoy!
I Can’t Make You Love Me/Nick Of Time by Bon Iver (Original by Bonnie Raitt)
Last week I shared a cover of a Bon Iver song and this week I couldn’t help but share Bon Iver covering a song. I love the original but I love his version just a bit more!
Don’t You (Forget About Me) by KT Tunstall (Original by Simple Minds)
To me, nothing could EVER top the original song. I mean, it is simple perfection. BUT I love how incredibly different KT made it for her version.
Just Like Heaven by AFI (Original by The Cure)
If you’ve been to the blog before then odds are you know how big of a fan-girl I am of all things The Cure. AFI didn’t change up the song a whole lot which is why I think I like it as a cover. Just Like Heaven is pretty much perfect the way it is.
Heartless by The Fray (Original by Kanye West)
I love this cover so much more than the original partly because I cannot stand Kanye (he really does have some pretty catchy songs but his personality makes it awfully hard for me to enjoy them. Sad but true.) and also partly because I love The Fray.
Radioactive by Lindsey Stirling & Pentatonix (Original by Imagine Dragons)
I absolutely adore this cover to pieces. The classical instruments mixed with the lyrics give off this incredible, haunting vibe. However if I am being totally honest, basically ANYTHING Lindsey cover with her violin turns out to be a favorite of mine. Also, I get to see Imagine Dragons in concert tonight (squee!!!) so I had to honor them somehow!
