music of the moment: a cover of ‘wrecking ball’

Guys, I’m going to be super honest: I don’t like pop music. I don’t really like anything in the Top 40 and regardless of how catchy the newest pop song by the latest pop star is, I won’t listen to it. Don’t get me wrong, I totally loved pop music when I was younger (BSB over N’Sync!) but I kinda consider those the classics. Today’s stuff is unimpressive.

What I DO like, however, is COVERS of pop songs by artists that I usually listen to/would totally listen to. Take “Wrecking Ball” by Miley Cyrus. There are so many covers of this song floating around the interwebs. I’ve heard a few of them and the other day, I finally discovered my favorite via Tumblr:

Sarah Blackwood from Walk Off the Earth, Emily from The Anti-Queens, and Jenni from Trouble and Daughter got together and did such an amazing, emotional version of this song. I love this version so much more than the original (sorry Miley).

Am I alone in my love of covers? What’s your favorite cover song?

Have a great weekend! I’m looking forward to doing absolutely nothing for once. :)
