NSFW, Lyrics.



This is how you do a cover. You take it, make it yours, & make it even more kickass than the original.

A banjo doesn't hurt, either.

This cover of "Little Secrets" by Passion Pit song made me want to hang up my guitar in defeat.


(This is the original version, to show how well she captures the synth melody)

Eh, I give props for doing a decent job on "A Team" since it's live, but... nah, it's not something I would listen to casually.

Now, stuff by Sam Tsui, Alex Goot, Kurt Hugo Schneider... those covers (or mash-ups) I would listen to all the time. And do, in fact.

I'm not going to bother linking videos since youtube is full of fan made videos and it's annoying sifting through the garbage.

I can't think of many covers in my playlists, with the major exception of anything Nirvana did from the Meat Puppets. Those were great.

EDIT: The Gary Jules Mad World cover is another good one, yeah.

Because the poppy, upbeat, fast paced original was so good?

I feel like there was a lot of good lyric writing done in the 80's that was completely overshadowed by the awful, awful synth garbage that ran over the top of it.

The Gary Jules cover rescues the lyrics from that, and gives 'em a more fitting accompaniment. That's a good cover.

If you want some RWP versions of songs, Aston does a pretty solid job.

Canon Rock is pretty classic.

Stop it.

This:



Is a bad TfF cover. Auto-tuned to oblivion, barely a variation. The Gary Jules cover is iconic.

The Gary Jules cover took everything that was good about the song and wrapped it in an awfully generic piano with whiny vocals. The original is dated and very 80's but the upbeat sound and high tempo with the depressing lyrics makes it work whereas the cover sounds like a teenager whining about his life on facebook.

I'm pretty sure that was exactly the intent.
