Song covers are a tricky business, and I particularly enjoy seeing what more independent / Rock artists can do with some of the most well-known Pop songs. I know that some of the below artists (i.e. Ed Sheeran) can be considered Pop, but they’re still putting a less “poppy” spin on these tunes. So, as a follow up to my previous post about covers, here are a whole bunch more of my faves!
Daughter “Get Lucky” (Daft Punk)
Passenger and Ed Sheeran – “No Diggity” (Blackstreet) / “Thrift Shop” (Macklemore and Ryan Lewis)
Coldplay “We Found Love” (Rihanna and Calvin Harris)
Florence and the Machine “Take Care” (Drake)
Ben Howard “Call Me Maybe” (Carly Rae Jepsen)
