Ever since I discovered some of the best covers on the net, I can’t stop adding to my growing list of favorites. I grew up listening to songs from different eras because every Sunday, our parents will listen to the oldies; and older cousins will listen to Bread and John Denver. So I pretty much appreciate different music genres and here are some of them.
Patti Austin – Smoke Gets in Your Eyes
(Original artist: The Platters)
My father is a big fan of the Platters and this is one of the songs I really love because of the movie, Always.
REM – All I Have to Do is Dream
(Original artist: Everly Brothers)
I almost can’t believe that it’s the same REM responsible for Losing My Religion.
Morrissey – Moon River
(Original artist: Audrey Hepburn)
It’s a surprise to hear him sing this because I just remember him for the song (which I also love), The More You Ignore Me.
If you hear a sobbing in the background, (based on a forum I read) it’s Audrey Hepburn crying in the movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, where this song was especially written for.
Jackson Browne – Stay
(Original artist: Maurice Williams & The Zodiacs)
This song was revived by Dreamhouse in the 80s but I find that I like this 70s version better. It’s a mashup and Stay starts at 5:52 but The Load Out is a great song, too.
I was laughing my head off at 7:11 😀
Radiohead – Nobody Does it Better
(Original artist: Carly Simon)
Who would’ve thought that the Creep singer can turn this into just about the sexiest rendition of the song ever! Well at least for me 😉
