I love it when I stumble across a good cover.  Most of the time it's a different musician covering the song, but sometimes the original artist will do an acoustic version of an already great song that blows me away.  Here are a few of my favorites:

BLUE MONDAY - Covered by Flunk

Originally by New Order, this cover is so great.  I love the lead singer's voice, which is very unique, and I think those vocal chords alone is really what makes this cover totally unforgettable.

SAY IT AIN'T SO - Covered by MoZella

MoZella puts an awesome twist on this already awesome song by Weezer.  It starts out slow but is kicked into high gear in the chorus.  I love the almost mysteriousness of the song and the piano is a great touch.

Should Tori Amos have put her own twist on what is easily considered one of the greatest songs of my generation?  If you're a Tori fan, I think you'll like it.  If you're a die-hard Nirvana fan {which I'm not} you may despise this piano/vocal rendition because it's anything but grungy.

ONLY YOU - Covered by Joshua Radin

When it comes to music, anything that Joshua Radin touches is golden to me.  I Love, love, LOVE his cover of Yaz's Only You.  And, if you already like the song or like Joshua Radin's other hits, I can't imagine you wouldn't totally dig this cover.  Oh, can we say, what a perfect wedding song?

PERSONAL JESUS - Acoustic Remix by Depeche Mode

I'm pretty sure my whole world changed after I heard this song.  Okay, ya, a bit of an exaggeration, but I was 20 at the time, so give me some credit.  But, seriously, if you like acoustic versions of already awesome songs and you're a DM fan, you will LOVE this remix.  I would love to see this song performed live.  It would be A.MA.ZING!

Don't leave me hanging.  If you know a good cover, do share!


  1. Hi Emily!
    I'm visiting you from SITS! Hope you have a GREAT Monday!

  2. I have no idea. I will have to check out some of these people.

  3. Just like movies, a cover (or remake) can either be genius or fall completely flat. It's amazing. I, personally, love punk rock covers of just about anything. :D

  4. Another Say It Ain't So? I must go listen.

  5. I love finding awesome covers. That Tori Amos one is really great. Never would have expected to like it, but I do.


Leave a thought.
