cover it up

I shamelessly admit that I am a Gleek, mostly because I like their renditions of different songs...oh and Puck is fiiine. While their versions are fun and pop-esque, my heart really lies with unique covers of hit songs. I tend to even like them better than the originals. It takes some pretty amazing artists to recreate a song into something quite spectacular. I believe that with a different sound it can actually give a song a whole new meaning.

Here are some of my lovely favorites:

The Rescues covering Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream"

Pixie Lott covering One Republic's "Apologize"

Katy Perry covering MGMT's "Electric Feel"

Passion Pit covering Cranberries' "Dreams"

Ellie Goulding covering Rihanna's "Only Girl"

Lissie covering Kid Cudi's "Pursuit of Happiness"
 

Yeah Yeah Yeahs covering Sonic Youth's "Diamond Sea"

What are some of your favorite cover songs?
