10 Good Cover Songs

Covers are an interesting thing. A lot of times, they leave me feeling stupid and worthless as I tell myself I’ve discovered this great new band who instantly put out a classic, only to find it’s a cover. But the silver lining to that feeling is that usually it means the cover was done right. The artist covering the material needs to bring an element of uniqueness to the original song in order to make it a bit of their own, but not a complete ripoff of the maker’s creation. And when done right, it’s a magical moment. Here are ten covers done exceptionally well.

Mashup Monday: March 19, 2012 (R.I.P.)

Mashup Monday

I started something today at work, thanks to a dear friend who sits next to me, that I think is going to help me appreciate the little things in life. Including Mondays. I have started, every Monday morning, to write down five things that I’m thankful for. It can be something as simple (but brilliant) as Reeses Peanut Butter Cups or as serious as being alive. But I’m going to do this every Monday, and something tells me it’s going to make me a happier person and it’ll remind me of the good things rather than letting me focus on any of the negative things that really don’t compare. Today’s picks are a firm reminder that I’m thankful to be alive. This is dedicated to Whitney Houston, Nate Dogg, and Biggie – and their friends and families – we’ll never forget you!

1. “Whitney” – Norwegian Recycling (Adele x Whitney Houston x Florence and the Machine x Bruno Mars)
