“Great Things Are Covered” – Anonymous
Three more brilliant covers for today:
Duffy – Ready For The Floor (Hot Chip Cover) Great acoustic cover of Hot Chip’s mega-hit courtesy of the brilliant BBC Live Lounge Series.
Fall Out Boy – Beat It (Michael Jackson Cover ft. John Mayer; Studio Version) I love Michael Jackson and strongly believe that other artists should not even attempt to cover his songs. That said, I was surprisingly pleased with what Fall Out Boy (particularly Patrick Stump’s vocals) and John Mayer (on guitar) could pull together on this hard rock interpretation of the MJ classic.
This Is Ivy League – Crown Of Love (Arcade Fire) “Crown of Love” has always been one of my all-time favorite Arcade Fire tracks. For their interpretation, This Is Ivy League strips the song down and brings much more intimacy and attention to the beautiful and haunting lyrics.
