Covers part 1

Covering a song at times can be a large task. How can someone take the original and make it better? Will the original always be better? I thought I would try and find some great examples of good and bad covers.

Lets start with the latest cover phenomenon, “Somebody that I used to know”

This song overall has been done very well in its original performance as well as covers.


The weirdest thing about this version is the hand motions from the Kimbra! Ha!

Cover 1 Pentatonix

Good cover, again weird hand motion stuff. Ha but they are feeling the song for sure!

Cover 2 Gavin Mikhail

Again good cover. A nice piano mix.

Cover 3 Walk off the earth

Best cover of the song perhaps. Coolest video for sure. It’s too bad the rest of the covers these guys do suck.

Overall this song has been done a lot but overall done well! Looking forward to checking out other covers. Any suggestions?
