Here’s a list of some solid cover songs I’ve landed on recently plus a Boyce Avenue one I’ve loved for some time now.
Such a beautiful, slow-downed version of the original.
LOVE me a good, solid Boyce Avenue cover. This take of MJ’s “Will You Be There” (from the 90’s Free Willy movie, ah nostalgia!), is probably my favorite of all his covers. And he has a lot.
This is such a gorgeous song to begin with and when you throw Brett Dennen’s unique voice on top of that, you have yourself a brilliant cover.
A fun, acoustic version of one of the most fun songs of all time.
I’ve always thought this song had such a great tune – the version I’m most familiar with is the Stars On 54, dance version – and this subdued version proves that this song is timeless.
I find this song very melancholic but it’s one of my favorite Beatles songs and this is a great take on the original. FYI I highly recommend listening to more of Imaginary Future if you haven’t – he recorded some other covers worth checking out.
I don’t have much faith in friendship these days, but Joshua Radin is one of my all-time favorite singer-songwriters, bonus points for him being a really nice guy (at least he was the night I met him briefly back when I worked in the biz, as they call it), and this cover is super sweet like him.
SEAWAVES is another artist that not only has created some beautiful covers (like this one), but has some good, original tunes to listen to as well.
