Many people think covers are usually worthless, to just let the original stand without anyone butchering it. We say eff that; let us enjoy our favorite songs by doing our own sweet renditions of them, interpret them as we please. If it wasn’t for covers, would we have some of the sickest tracks known to man right now? Van Halen covered The Kinks’ “You Really Got Me”, Jimi Hendrix covered Bob Dylan’s “All Along The Watchtower” and if you dare to tell us that his cover sucked, take a minute to reevaluate what you think good music really is. Yes, it’s all opinion-base but holy cow where is your head. Let’s leave it right here and just introduce you to Zachary Clowes and his interpretation of “The Middle” by Jimmy Eat World”
“Unchained Melody” is one of our favorite songs to ever be listened to by our ears and it’s an utterly difficult song to cover, let alone do a good enough job without butchering it. Nevertheless, The Voice contestant Lilli Passero has dared to try the impossible and she absolutely smashed it! We say that in a good way, her vocals are perfect to match the tone of this classic. “Unchained Melody” is such a heart-stopping song that only those who truly feel what the lyrics say can really perform up to par with it. Only those who have truly hungered for the touch from the one they love, where time seems like so much, lonely time. When it says “Time goes by so slowly”, it is felt every time we listen to it sung by The Righteous Brother, but now when Lilli Passero sings it as well. Time loses its own sense of time as it is being serenaded by the voice of these two singers.
Music is truly our love and our darling and Lilli Passero delivers it in such a soulful and lovely act; there’s no stopping such a talent like this. That’s why The Voice was the perfect stage for her to show the world she can do it. We’re excited to follow her and create her own soulful classic to make time slow down for this generation of lovers. Take a minute and turn it into twenty as you listen to Lilli Pallero romanticize your ear drums with the cover of “Unchained Melody“.
Nirvana rocks harder than most but they can also bring it when they go unplugged. One track we’ve always wanted to listen to in slower, softer tone was “Heart-Shaped Box” and we finally got it! Nico Eno brings his vocal prowess to sing and sing it beautifully over a sweet acoustic melody. Keeping it as simple as possible to keep it only about the track and his voice. We still get the rawness that made this track unique when you feel the pain in Nico’s voice as well. The words seem to speak to him as it does to all of us. We are grateful for rugged unplugged touch and we hope Paris doesn’t keep Nico Eno all for themselves. Listen to Nico Eno’s rendition of “Heart-Shaped Box‘ and let us know what you think about this cover.

Dr. Dre has been one of the pioneers of hip-hop since the late 80’s and anyone who dares to cover one of his original tracks; the odds are definitely not in their favor. What does Autograf decide to do then? They decide to cover Dr. Dre’s biggest hit to=date, “Next Episode”. Autograf names it just “Episode” but anyone can recognize the great voice of the legendary Nate Dogg in the chorus of this song. May he rest in peace. Autograf turns this hip-hop classic into an Electronic track that is catchy and possibly just as intoxicating. We want to let Autograf do their own talking as they spin this track below. Give it a whirl and tell us if you think it’s just as good as the original classic.

“Creep” is a classic 90’s song from Radiohead that spoke about all the imperfections we have as humans and how we wish we can change them. The mood of the classic song is depressing to say the least, which is why we have to truly admire KSHMR for having the ability to turn this song into an upbeat, fun song. Continue reading “Beautiful rendition of Radiohead’s “Creep” from KSHMR”
