Under the Covers

We all have our favorite covers of those epic songs you can never stop singing. It always seems like every couple of years there comes a song that everyone has to cover. Some make it their own and some don’t do the song any justice at all. Below are my all time favorite covers. It took me so long to develop a list of ten songs because narrowing it down to only ten was a huge task for me. Enjoy my favorite covers and if you fall in love with them as much as I have, follow the link to the artist’s page to learn more about the artist “under” the cover.

1. Laura Jansen – Use Somebody (original: Kings of Leon)

2. Iron & Wine – Such Great Heights (original: The Postal Service)

3. The Long Winters – Give Me All Your Lovin’ (original: ZZ Top)
