“Great Things Are Covered” – Anonymous
This should be the first of hopefully many posts highlighting some of my favorite covers. In today’s Special UK Edition:
Lily Allen – Womanizer (Britney Spears Cover). I’m not a huge Lily fan but she strips Womanizer down and gives it some great English sass. Very nice.
Leona Lewis – Run (Snow Patrol Cover). This a rather straight-forward interpretation but Leona’s voice does the original justice and the final product is beautiful.
George Michael – As (ft. Mary J. Blige; Stevie Wonder cover). I wasn’t familiar with the Stevie Wonder original when I came across this version but I still think I prefer this one more: I really like Mary J.’s voice in this (it’s kinda rough!) and it’s got a gospel choir doing backing vocals! Woot!
