Blame it on American Idol, or even Glee, but I love a well-done cover song. Hearing an artist take on a fellow creative’s song has become one of my favorite things, because it allows the listener to become acquainted with a song in a new way. Take a listen to some of my favorite cover songs from this past year.
Ed Sheeran – “Dirrty” (Christina Aguilera)
Kelly Clarkson – “Nobody Love” (Tori Kelly)
Atlas Genius – “On My Mind” (Ellie Goulding)
Louisa Wendorff – “Blank Space”/”Style” (Taylor Swift)
MAX + Against The Current – “I Really Like You” (Carly Rae Jepsen)
Jasmine Thompson – “Thinking Out Loud” (Ed Sheeran)
One Direction – “Torn” (Natalie Imbruglia)
