I can’t do without music. It may sound exaggerated but I feel like that. Usually, I don’t like listening to cover songs if they are as same as the original versions. I think these 3 covered songs are so beautiful performed by unique artists who can turn brilliant songs to be as their own.
Ellie Goulding – Your song
Although, this song is originally composed and sung by Elton John, I firstly listened to this song while watching Moulin Rouge! in theater. And I totally fell in love with the song by just 1st verse from Ewan McGregor. Compared to the film soundtrack, Ellie’s version is simpler, yet so refreshing and lovable.
Birdy – Skinny Love
No one can deny that Bon Iver is magnificent for the original version. But, Birdy is also able to provide the haunting emotion for the song.
Ingrid Michaelson – Can’t Help Falling In Love
Actually, I listened to this song by Elvis without a particular feeling. When I heard this version in Like Crazy trailer, I just died there. Admittedly, I cried by only seeing the trailer with this song.
