Awesome Covers: Jump
Can we talk about Paul Anka covering Van Halen’s Jump as a swing version of the song for a second?Â Yeah, that’s a thing that happened. And its worth listening to.
Awesome Covers: I Believe in a Thing Called Love
I haven’t done one of these in a while. This bluegrassy cover ofÂ I believe in a thing called love is really quite lovely.
Awesome Covers: And She Was
When I was a teenager, I didn’t really get the Talking Heads. They were weird, and not very musical (I thought at the time). As I get older though, I find I enjoy the talking heads more and more. And She Was is one of my favourites. I really dig this cover of And She Was by Twin Forks.
Awesome Covers: Life’s What You Make It
I love this cover of Talk Talk’s Life’s What you Make It by Placebo. The song is recognizably like the original, but the sound is pure Placebo (I’ve mentioned Placebo’s covers before, and they always reliably fall into my criteria for what makes a good cover).
