On to Muesday...
I have a thing for covers. I love them. I just can't help myself. It's like my obsession with bad television. If I hear a cover of a song that I like, I'm all over it...unless it's a cover of a band that someone has no right covering, like Coldplay, or Paramore (which also happen to be be two of my favourite bands). There are just some artists that people should never try to copy. Take the American Idol contestants. There are artists that they should never sing. Like Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Alicia Keys, Adele, Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood. Those ladies have some serious talent, I mean, they are platinum selling artists for a reason, and you clearly are not. If someone wants to try to sing one of their songs, you should know right off the bat that you are probably going to fail on a scale of epic proportions. You should have the foresight to realize that it's a bad life choice. But I do enjoy it when the American Idol contestants sing a song like Rolling in the Deep, do a sub-par job and are then surprised that they were voted off. It shouldn't come as a surprise you moron. Anyway, back to my original point. I like a good cover, and usually, some of my favourite, not top 40 artists, take a crappy top 40 song and turn it into something magical. So, this week, I am sharing some covers with you all. The first is buy they great folk/singer/songwriter artist Lissie. It's from her small EP Covered Up With Flowers. Her cover of Kid Cudi's Pursuit of Happiness just makes me so happy. Also the fact that she announces that she is shooting tequila before singing givers her serious points in my books. Also, she takes it like a champ, straight from the bottle. So, enjoy Pursuit of Happiness by Lissie
The second cover that I am sharing with all you fantastic people today is a cover of T.I.'s Whatever You Like by Anya Marina. You can also hear Anya Marina on the newest Twilight soundtrack with her song Satellite Heart. I've said it once, and I'll say it again. The Twilight movies are painful, but they do put out some awesome soundtracks.
