Under The Covers

“Great Things Are Covered” – Anonymous

Random collection of three great covers today:

Antony & The Johnsons – Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door (Bob Dylan Cover).  I’ve been a huge fan of A&TJ for a while now and I was still completely blown away at how gut-wrenchingly beautiful they made this song.  Instant favorite.

The Fray – Heartless (Kanye West Cover).  This one is hot off the presses and is definitely worth a listen.  The Fray attack this song with guitar while I think it may have been more interesting with a piano and while there is so. much. pain. in this song lyrically, I’m not sure I feel all of that pain in The Fray’s intrepetation.

Shirley Bassey – Get This Party Started (Pink Cover). We’ll end on a fun note. Ms. Bassey provides a predictable spin on this song but that’s not a criticism as she turns Pink’s fluffy Top 40 hit into something worthy of it’s own Bond film.

Enjoy!
