and then PMA did it (almost) for me, and i thought id expand on it a little here.
here’s the thing: I love Kings of Leon. And I freaking love when talented artists cover them.
Kings of Leon
Bat for Lashes **** – no one does a slow burn like Natasha Khan.
Paramore **** s- surprisingly enjoyable. great acoustic version.
Karima Francis – still prefer Natasha’s version, but it’s damn good. quiet and sparse.
Knocked Up – Lykke Li and Kings of Leon (Rodeo Mash Up) – absolutely fantastic. i like this version better than either solo one.
You know what i also love?
–> Springsteen covers.
two of my fave covers of all time are below. crap, i could do a whole post on Springsteen & covers. but i’ll spare you for now. May have posted these before, but whatever:
Tortoise & Bonnie Prince Billy — Thunder Road***** – freaking brilliant
–> Springsteen — Thunder Road (acoustic)
Florence & Kid Harpoon — Going Down***** – my best of 08. incredible.
–> the original — I’m going down
Swati — Im on Fire – hell. yes.
