This post is inspired by the latest Daughter's cover of Daft Punk’s "Get Lucky". I thought it was brilliant and there is plenty of other outstanding covers out there. I’m not calling this top 5 covers, as this is definitely not a very top 5. They are just lovable. If you have other cool suggestions for more "Top 5" posts, drop by our Facebook and say hi!
Ben Howard – Call Me Maybe
Surprise surprise. Ben can turn even something like “Call Me Maybe” into a masterpiece. I mean you’ve all probably heard this song which gets stuck in your head forever.The cover is brilliant with the guitar, cello, Ben’s voice. As somebody smartly commented on Youtube: Can he always turn crap into gold?
Starfucker – Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
Another great example of turning cheesy girlie song into actually something decent and danceable. I mean I do appreciate the song by Cindy Lauper when I’m in one of these nostalgic moments, but I would much rather listen to Starfucker.
Hugo – 99 problems
A very unexpected view of the Jay Z’s famous “99 problems”. Oh how many 99 jokes have been around at some point. Anyways, Hugo turned this badass rap into a country track. At first I thought it was weird, but then I got to like it.
Blackbird Blackbird - Float On
I think you all know this positive tune of Modest Mouse. It always puts me in an excellent mood. This electronic cover of it is definitely worth a listen. I absolutely love when the artists make something you are used to so unusual and so awesome. Blackbird Blackbird is pretty awesome in general.
