    Never don't be double-posting. That's my motto. Moving on.

    Anyway. This version of Heart Like A Wheel, which is sort of a folk/country classic, is my hands down favorite. Yep, even better than Emmylou's.

    Bastille has some amazing covers/mashups but this one is by far their best (cover of No Scrubs with the instrumental of Angels by the xx)


    Lykke Li's cover of Fleetwood's Silver Springs
    https://soundcloud.com/deccarecords/08-silver-springs

    Florence Welch's cover of Take Care


    Miley Cyrus's cover of Arctic Monkey's WYOCMWYH (the end is great)

    Yes... I know. Simple but I love her take on it.

    Took awhile for me to come around to this cover because I thought she sounded like a witch

    I actually also didn't like this so much at first, but I just figured out the strings and have been playing this on my own and I like it. Ha.

    Don't like the original but I love lykke li's voice for this song.

    I find this oddly satisfying and I don't care. Hahaha

    Haven't heard that Anya Marina cover in awhile, loved her voice. Also Birdy does stellar covers, her A Team cover was A+

    She really does have such a great voice. Some covers aren't her strongest, like 1901, but that could just be my preference. Like the A Team definitely had a more soothing take from her cover compared to the original.

    She for sure deals better with downtempo songs, they just translate better into her piano acoustic niche

    Agreed. I definitely like this cover of hers though.
    It's funny because I swear I like some covers more than the original song.
