There were a lot of hit songs nowadays that was often covered either by another or fellow manistream artist by the original singers, while mostly though were heard in YouTube. I used to listen to cobers on YouTube and Boyce Avenue has became one of by favorites. They had nailed a lot of songs in their own version, though, I couldn’t agree that they did very well in ALL of their covers. I heard a lot of cover songs lately on YouTube buy I wasn’t impressed in a lot of them. I couldn’t feel the sincerity in their versions and I think better leave those songs to the original singers.
Here are some of the songs being covered which should better left to the original singers:
I heard a cover verrsion of this song played on FM radio. I alao heard a lot of version of it on YouTube. However, I never heard a single version that went close to Adele’s version. When doing a cover of any Adele song, make sure to even go close, if not match, to Adele’s.
Christina Perri- Jar of Hearts
This song had lots of cover versions on YouTube. I am not that impressed with their versions. I cannot feel the anger of Christina Perri in this song from those cover version. In fact, the video I had seen when a video did the song into American Sign Language is even more effective than those cover versions.
To sing this song, make sure you have a high voice because of the high notes it requires. But it shouldn’t be all about high notes. You should feel the pain the original siner felt when she sang this as it is based on her personal experience. That’s what’s lacking in those cover versions. You cannot feel the sincerity in their versions, aside from loud vocals which becomes irritating to listen to. Well, Sia had such a wonderful and unique voice. It’s only her who can sing the song beautifully and emotion catching.
Ed Sheeran- Thinking Out Loud
This song was often covered too. Since it is a love song, it can surely makes you fall in love and I felt that from Ed Sheeran’s version. Recently, I heard a cover version on the radio and I was annoyed. It was a female version and it should catch me if, for example, the girl is singing that song to me, but it lacks sincerity. I could not feel the love in that version.
