Tuesday Tunes - 10 Cover Songs You Need to Hear

By | 12:22 PM 2 comments

I recently discovered Indie Shuffle which is an awesome website that features new indie music every day! I found myself listening to a bunch of cool covers, so I thought I'd do a post of my 10 favorite cover songs. If you'd rather play them all at once, you can find all 20 on my YouTube playlist here. Enjoy!

1. Matt Corby - Lonely Boy (The Black Keys)

This one is probably my favorite out of the bunch for a number of reasons. The original video is killer (The Black Keys had a different video shot, but were unhappy with it, but they really liked this guy's moves), Matt Corby's voice is amazing and he transforms the song in a beautiful way.

2. This Absorable Little Girl And Her Dad - Home (Edward Sharpe & The Magnetric Zeros)


If you don't find this cute, you might be the Grinch. 

3. Holy Ghost! - Hold On We're Going Home (Drake)

I'm not a huge Drake fan by any means, but Holy Ghost! have turned me around with Hold On We're Going Home.

4. When I Grow Up - Mayday Parade (Pussycat Dolls)

I thought I was so cool listening to this song in highschool. I might still think I'm so cool listening to this song...

5. Get Low - Dan Henig (Lil' Jon)

I had to include one of these slow acoustic versions of rap songs that are equally confusing and hilarious. Other noteworthy ones include Jenny Owen Young's Hot In Herre and Ben Fold's Bitches Ain't Shit.

6. The Suburbs - Mr Little Jeans (Arcade Fire)

It takes balls to cover Arcade Fire and I think Mr Little Jeans does it so well.

7. House of the Rising Sun - Lauren O'Connell (The Animals)

The House Of The Rising Sun might be the most covered song ever. I heard this version on American Horror Story Coven and was awed at how Lauren O'Connell somehow made this classic rock tune mystical and eerie. 

8. Hozier - Whole Lotta Love (Led Zeppelin)

Bravo Hozier, bravo.

9. Chet Faker - No Diggity (Blackstreet)

I love Chet Faker and I love No Diggity - this was an easy choice.

10. Muse - Feeling Good

Another heavily covered song, Feeling Good has been touched by the likes of Michael Buble and the Pussycat Dolls. Muse does it the best.

I hope you enjoyed the list! Here's one bonus tune for the upcoming holidays:
