Anyway, moving on. While inputting some information of a file at work the word “Battle of the Bar Bands” and that just got me thinking. Bar Bands? Bands? Cover music! Don’t ask this is just what wound up coming up from this “ah ha” moment.
So here are my top 10 favorite artists/bands who have done covers for songs that might’ve gotten bad press and just made it… better.
1. A Day to Remember – Since U Been Gone (cover Kelly Clarkson)
2. David Sides ft. Ahmir – The Climb (cover Miley Cyrus)
3. Boyce Avenue ft. Tiffany Alvord – Jar of Hearts (cover Christina Perri)
4. Ray Lamontagne – Crazy (cover Gnarls Barkley)
5. Walk Off the Earth – Somebody that I Used to Know (cover Gotye)
And this video is just very cool!
6. Jasmine Villegas & David Sides – Halo (cover Beyoncé)
It’s not the greatest, but she did really well.
7. Skylar Grey – Love the Way You Lie (cover Eminem ft. Rihanna)
8. Christina Grimmie – Titanium (cover David Guetta ft. Sia)
9. Coldplay – Paradise (Peponi) African Style (Piano/Cello Cover) – ThePianoGuys
What’s your favorite cover song?
