Because cover songs are the best songs.
By David Cotrone (Writer)
First off, a shameless plug: I'm a part of this website called Used Furniture Review. It has nothing to do with furniture. Instead, it's a place for original fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and music. And you know what? You might like it. But even if you don't, and if you think you might like me, then I hope you'll consider sigining up for this infrequently random newsletter.
Now onto a few cover songs that have managed to keep the attention of my eardrums:
1. "When Doves Cry" by The Be Good Tanyas.
This girl-powered folk-fest of a song is a nod to none other than Prince, or else the artist formerly known as.
2. "I Try" by Ben Taylor.
The son of timeless crooner James Taylor and ever-not-so-vain Carly Simon, Ben was basically fated to produce this flawless track.
3. "Seven Nation Army" by Ben l'Oncle Soul.
While his name is unpronounceable, his groove is unmistakable.
