Mixtape Mondays | Awesome Covers vol.5

Monday, December 18, 2017 0 Comments A+ a-

Not long ago I was watching a video which touched on an interesting subject: the weird associations our brain does following relationships. More specifically break ups. It mentioned grudges we hold without even being aware we're doing so. If you're not sure of what I am talking about, well, answer this question. How many times have you swiped left because the person in question shared the same name as your ex? 

Do check Amber Run's original material, they're fantastic, live even more so! 

Now you may be wondering, how come that has anything to do with music or blogging? Well, I got really stuck after my last playlist named after Dodie's song Sick of Losing Soulmates, I just didn't know how to follow it. There are absolutely no excuses for being away for so long, but I guess I needed a break. However, with the new year in the horizon and the promise of a fresh start, I thought it was high time for me to put some new playlists out there. 

Mixtape Mondays | Awesome Covers vol.5

I coming back with an easy one, Awesome Covers is back! As you're probably aware, I don't listen to much commercial music, so I often have no idea a song is a cover. Most recently it happened with Hide & Seek. I've only knew the Amber Run version and had never even heard of Imogen Heap until it played at a friends' dinner party. It also took me a while to realise Pillowtalk wasn't a Mystery Jets track. Anywaaaay... Before you judge me, at least I know Shake It Off is not a Ryan Adams song. 

One of my favourite covers in this playlist is Regina Spektor's piano driven version of No Surprises, followed by Xylaroo's take on I Bet You Look Good On The Dance Floor. You'll also find here Travis, The Civil Wars, Little Hours, The Pains of Being Pure At Heart and many more. I hope you enjoy this better-late-than-never-come-back of Mixtape Mondays. Happy listening!
