I’m a huge fan of cover songs for some reason. At least, cover songs that are done really well. I heard this song last night on the Vampire Diaries (yes, I watch that show and no, I’m not ashamed so ahead, judge if you must) and I was taken aback how beautiful it sounded being sung by this girl, Birdy. I adore the original Bon Iver version, but she takes and completely makes it her own.
The video for her version of the song is also pretty and haunting. It’s a sweet, sad song but so well done, I felt compelled to share. Enjoy. :)
