10 Covers You Didn't Know You Needed

I don’t know if I am the only one, but I feel like song covers have seriously stepped up their game. They used to sound the exact same as the original but with a different voice. Now people are putting their own twist on the songs and I am here for it. These are my top 10 covers you MUST listen to. (Check out my Spotify playlist HERE where I will most likely add even more than are listed here.)

Somebody Else - VÉRITÉ

I love love love The 1975 and never thought I would say this, but I think I might like the cover better than the original.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

This cover is so laid back and cool compared to the original. I love the upbeat lyrics with the slowed down melody.

Ultralight Beam - Harry Styles

Ok. This is one of my all time favorite covers. Of course I like Kanye’s version, but this version is so different from the original. Plus, it was performed at Harry’s secret show in London.

That Don’t Impress Me Much - HAIM

Effortlessly cool as always. This cover makes me want to roll my windows down and cruise down PCH.

Hey Ya! - Sweater Beats and KAMAU

Who doesn't love the original of this song? The cover is really just an updated sound, but it is still just as catchy.

…Baby One More Time - Ed Sheeran

One of the first albums I remember having was a Britney album, so it’s no wonder I love this Ed cover.

Hard To Handle - Courtney Hadwin

If you haven’t seen Courtney Hadwin’s audition for America’s Got Talent you are seriously missing out. My mind was blown. Her cover of this classic song was out of this world.

Buy U A Drank - MAX w/ Gnash

Funny enough, T-Pain’s version of this song was the first song I listened to when I got my first iPhone. The cover is super upbeat and poppy and so good.

My Heart Will Go On - Jessie J

I will admit I’ve never seen Titanic before, but that doesn’t stop me from appreciating how insane this rendition is.

Sorry - Gavin James

I could listen to Gavin James’ voice all day. He is so talented and this cover is a fabulous take on Bieber’s hit.
