Duck For Cover #3

It’s been a while since i dedicated a post just straight down the line to the wonder that is cover versions……well it’s been a while since i did a post at all actually! But here are some absolutely sublime cover versions that have been tickling my ears recently.

Duck For Cover #1

Another new section, just a simple post about cover versions of songs i like, dislike or maybe even just find funny. I’m gonna do 5 songs each post (well it’ll actually work out at 10 cos both versions will be included). Usually i would post MP3 versions of the songs so that you would be able to download them but i’m having a few problems with my external hard drive at the moment and it has practically all of my music on it. Over 200GB of music just vansihed 😦

Anyways, videos will have to do for the time being…and even at that, it won’t be the official videos. YouTube doesn’t allow you to embed “official” videos.

1. SET YOU FREE

Original Version – N-Trance
Cover Version – Frightened Rabbit

2. EVERYWHERE

Original Version – Fleetwood Mac
Cover Version – Vampire Weekend

3. BLACK HISTORY MONTH

Original Version – Death From Above 1979
Cover Version – Neverending White Lights

*the version that Neverending White Lights do is actually a cover version of a remix version of “Black History Month” believe it or not but we’ll let it swing just this once. If you’re interested the remix they’re covering is by Allan Braxe and Fred Falke.

4. HEARTBEATS

Original Version – The Knife
Cover Version – Jose Gonzalez

5. BETWEEN THE BARS

Original Version – Elliott Smith
Cover Version – Metric
