Covers – How I love you (Week 1)
Covers as in musical covers – not blankets (although those are pretty sweet too).
So, I am a big youtuber – I just love watching videos, finding new stuff, discovering talent. A big part of the time I spend on youtube is listening to covers of music, which my previous roommates can attest too.
“Why don’t you ever just listen to the real song?” – Sarah. Haha, well I am going to answer the question. I do of course listen to the original songs, but I find that listening to covers can really give you new appreciation for both the song and the person who created the cover. So, I figured I would do a weekly round up of covers of songs that I found to be awesome. Mostly, I enjoy youtube artists who are playing their own music, and who can really add something to the song – acoustic covers make me happy!
I was a little torn between posting multiple covers of one song, or just a variety of covers. I decided that because most of you aren’t like me, you wouldn’t want to listen to the same song over and over, so I will just be doing a variety, and then giving you recomended links! Yahoo. The way this will work is I will choose 3-4 covers that really like. I will post the name of the song, the original singer and a link to the original song if I can find it. Then I will list the artists covering the song, and you can reach their youtube pages by clicking their names!
So, this is week 1. I hope you enjoy
