I don’t know exactly what my obsession is with covers but I have to say, when I hear a song re-done well by another artist it’s as if it become a totally new tune. It can be just as satisfying as or even better than the original.
The following covers are my recent favourites and what a wonderful way to become aware of a new artist! I just got tickets to see Lissie live and it was after having watched the following video of her singing Gaga’s Bad Romance.
Check them out.

I was also blown away by how beautifully The Rescues harmonise in their cover of Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream.

Ellie Goulding’s Your Song is a quintessential British video, a wonderful version of Elton John’s original. She is so absolutely beautiful in this video and how great are the shots, it just makes me want to go to Hampstead Heath with a camera and film.
