I got the inspiration of creating a mix of “Cover songs” from a facebook post. (I’m looking at you Hilda and John Legend!) With the advent of Glee it would seem that the art of “re-interpreting a song” has reached its pinnacle. Or was it the lowest chambers of mediocrity hell?
Some cover songs are like accessorizing a well dressed woman with a smaller purse to accentuate the dangly bangles orbiting her tender wrists. It looks good but doesn’t get in the way of her style. Other cover songs manage to be the acid wash jumpsuit that no one should ever be forced to wear. (No matter how much money you’re getting).
Some of these songs are done so well that you may never have suspected them to be covers. Others balance on the scale between homage and fromage. Regardless, enjoy the cover up.
