“Great Things Are Covered” – Anonymous
Three random covers for today…
Regina Spektor – Real Love (John Lennon Cover). I was only introduced to this song through Regina’s cover and was absolutely blown away by it’s beauty. John’s love songs always had a graceful simplicity to them and coupled with Regina’s voice, it makes for a beautiful combination.
Franz Ferdinand – Call Me (Live Blondie Cover). This comes from the great “War Child: Heroes” compilation. The cover is pretty straight forward, but Franz Ferdinand give it a good spin and make it a keeper.
The Postal Service – Against All Odds (Phil Collins Cover). I’ve read some ridiculously positive reviews of this cover. While I don’t disagree completely, it didn’t change my life either. If you don’t like the beginning, don’t worry – it picks up about half way through. Personally, I kinda want to have my hands on everything The Postal Service ever created, but even if you’re not that rabid, it’s still worth having.
