Bastille “Basket Case” (Green Day Cover)

Good to hear new music from the boys of Bastille, even if it isn’t an original. Fantastic cover.

Calum Scott “Golden Slumbers” Cover

I’m sharing this beautiful lullaby cover of The Beatles “Golden Slumbers” by the magical Calum Scott in honor of my nephew who was born 3 weeks ago today – love you Jamesy!!!

Pentatonix “Hallelujah”

Unless you do not have access to the internet or any form of media, you are aware of the general sense that 2016 was a shit year – and I completely agree. Let’s be real, we humans are screwing the pooch big time… It’s a new year now, though, which means it’s another chance to start over and try to be better and do the right thing. Whatever that means.

This cover of “Hallelujah” from Pentatonix is strikingly beautiful and raw. To me it epitomizes, in song, the light that can come from the recent darkness. The world has never been a perfect place but it’s still standing, even after the most desperate of times. And that’s something to sing about.

 

Civil Twilight “Dancing With Myself” (Billy Idol Cover)

Just beautiful.

Foy Vance (The Theme From Cheers)

Foy Vance adds a layer of depth to this song that’s missing from the original. I love this cover.

 

Calum Scott “Dancing On My Own” (Robyn Cover)

I don’t know anything about Calum Scott but dear lord this cover of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own” (basically my theme song) is too beautiful for words. You just have to listen to it.

Gavin James “Magic” (Coldplay Cover)

Ugh. This is exactly how I feel and I want to cry because this song is so beautiful and he is so beautiful and I am so hopeless.

Sofia Karlberg “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” (Adele Cover)

The perfect breakup song for adults.

I actually like this version better than Adele’s (sshh).

Autre Ne Veut “Little Red Corvette” (Prince Cover)

This is the most perfect thing I’ve heard in a long time. RIP Prince.
