I'm an odd person. I love almost everything.
I enjoy playing sports, singing, fishing, hunting, working out, eating etc.
But, I am also a big geek/nerd.
Occasionally, I come across something on the internet which gives me a schoolgirl type glee.
This video is one of them.
A couple days ago Lorde teased a 90 second clip of her cover of Tears For Fears song 'Everybody Wants To Rule The World'. She definitely owned the song and added her own spin to it, because it sounds nothing like the original.
I love covers. At the risk of sounding like an over-paid American Idol judge, I love when an "unknown" Youtube star covers songs I love, and make them their own. Some times the "unknown" stars sound just as good (or better!) than the original...
I love searching out songs I love covered on Youtube. Sometimes they suck, sometimes they're better than the original!
(If you haven't seen my Florence + the Machine's, "Dog Days Are Over" blog about covers I love check it out here.)
I couldn't resist sharing with you one of my favorite instrumental songs covered: the Angry Birds Theme...
I really shouldn't watch videos at work that make me cry. But I do. I saw this posted on a Facebook page a few times before I actually watched it. I'm glad I did. The only thing I regret is that I didn't shut my office door first. I appreciate that my co-workers show concern when they see my crying at work, but it's ok guys...
