Hello everyone! I hope your Monday treated you well and that your Tuesday is off to an awesome start. This post concludes the special Cover Edition of Tune In Tuesday. I have had an absolute BLAST seeing everyone’s covers and I hope you have enjoyed it as well. And just so we’re clear, the month of October will be another “normal” month for us Tune-In-Tuesday-Ers! I’ve got quite a big post for you guys today because, quite honestly, I couldn’t narrow down the list. I hope you enjoy!

Dead And Gone by Cute Is What We Aim For (Original by T.I. and Justin Timberlake)

If you haven’t yet, you NEED to listen to at least one of the “Punk Goes…” albums. My personal favorite is Punk Goes Classic Rock but the Punk Goes Pop (where this song comes from) is close second. The original got way overplayed on the radio when it first came out but I love this cover of it.

Caught Up In You by We The Kings (Original by .38 Special)

You had to have known I would throw in a We The Kings song. They have done a few covers, The Middle being another favorite, but I just love how fun and upbeat this one is!

You’re The One That I Want by Angus & Julia Stone (Original by John Travolta & Olivia Newton-John)

I love, love, freaking LOVE this version of the song. It is so hauntingly beautiful and totally different from the original.

The One That Got Away by Tiffany Alvord and Chester See (Original by Katy Perry)

Both Tiffany and Chester are amazing artists I found on YouTube. I liked Katy’s version of this song but I really like this version a lot more mostly due to the fact that they slowed it down a lot.

Let Her Go by Tyler Ward (Original by Passenger)

Tyler Ward is another artist I found on YouTube who does some fantastic covers. This particular one is a favorite although it really is hard to narrow it down because I sort of love them all hardcore. He really didn’t change this one up a whole lot from the original and I think that’s what I like most about it.

Ring Of Fire by Lennon and Maisy (Original by Johnny Cash)

Every time I hear these two perform, I am blown away by their natural talent. I could listen to them sing the phone book and I would be entertained for hours and hours but you know what, I think I will stick with a Johnny Cash classic in the meantime.

Bette Davis Eyes by Taylor Swift (Original by Kim Carnes)

Nothing can beat the orignal of this one but I must say, I really enjoy Taylor’s cover of it. Her voice is totally different from Kim’s so it makes for a really interesting cover.

Ho Hey by Boyce Avenue (Original by The Lumineers)

This couldn’t even be called cover edition if I didn’t feature the kings of it, Boyce Avenue. Every cover, and yes, I do mean EVERY. SINGLE. COVER. by them is simply amazing. This guy has some truly amazing skills.

Your Love by Fay Wolf (Original by The Outfield)

This will go down in history as my all-time, absolute FAVORITE cover. EVER. I love the original something fierce; it’s one of those songs I can listen to over and over again but there is just something about this cover that I love just a teensy bit more. Hope you enjoy!


Tune In Tuesday (56)

Tune In Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Ginger @ GReads so you should head on over and link up! It is a great way to bounce from blog to blog and discover what others are listening to! I love music but there is so much out there that I haven’t heard of before. That being said, feel free to leave a link to your Tune-In Tuesday post!

This past weekend I attended 80’s Fest with a few of my friends and it basically rocked our socks off! 80’s Fest is this weekend long event in a town right next to us in which you dress up in 80’s attire, look at 80’s memorabilia, listen to some AMAZING 80’s cover bands (Rock Star and The Square Pegz), dance your little butts off, AND raise a ton of money for cancer research. As you can tell, this is by far one of the most epic of things to occur in this boring, little Michigan town. I am a 90’s child by birth but in my heart, I know I am an 80’s child. The music, the clothing, the movies, just EVERYTHING shouts Katelyn to me. So since I have been in such an 80’s mood lately, I will try my best to get all of you in an 80’s mood as well by having you listen to some of my favorite songs!

p.s. There will be pictures at the end of our radical 80’s Fest get-ups (which may be a tad bit different from what 80’s clothing really looked like)

Pour Some Sugar On Me by The Maine (Def Leppard Cover)

I love The Maine AND this song so very much so when I figured out they had covered it I just about died!

Here I Go Again by Whitesnake

They just don’t make videos like that any more.

Time After Time by Quietdrive (Cyndi Lauper Cover)

By far one of the best cover songs I have ever heard!

Jesse’s Girl by Rick Springfield

Nothing makes me think of 13 Going On 30 like this song <3

Push It by Salt-N-Pepa

While at the RT Convention, Jasmine had this song stuck in her head so when they played it at 80’s Fest I FREAKED out (in a good way!)

Your Love by The Outfield

This is and always will be one of my favorite 80’s song. For those on the braver side, I suggest listening to I See Stars cover of the song. There’s a bit of screamo involved but I still love it!
