1. Ecstasy – The Funeral (Band of Horses Cover)
When UK band Ecstasy took a stab at Band Of Horses‘s The Funeral in 2012, they showed the world how a cover can be both an homage to the original songwriter and a fresh take on an instant classic. This was a daring move, as The Funeral is one of those songs that’s hard to beat, but Ecstasy brought an element of uniqueness to the table with their electro-pop version of the slow tune. The highlight of the song, in my opinion, comes just before the 3:00 mark when Ecstasy slows it down in true Band of Horses style.
