My rather neglected guitar.
Music is so very personal to each and every single one of us. What band one person may adore another will easily dismiss therefore for me I've always found it to be somewhat of a 'taboo' subject. Will people quickly click off my little blog here if they see a band they can't stand or if they think my taste is a little bit odd? I've come to the realisation however that this is a little bit daft as after all my first sentence of this post says it all.
Up until now I've only ever posted a few music posts which in all honesty have never really gone down that well. Surely you guys are music fans too? There is more to life than our lipsticks and skincare I'm rather certain which is a feeling that is striking me far too often these days. I'm feeling a little disengaged with the whole 'beauty blogging' thing at the moment, I want to tweet my feelings about it but fear I may be taken the wrong way. If I'm honest with you I feel I've become a bit too materialistic and it is a feeling that I do not like, not one bit. I'm trying to find myself again as I'm a girl that loves the countryside, animals, painting and singing albeit not that well, where has Amy disappeared to? This is becoming far too deep for this rather light hearted music covers post today, maybe I'll save it for another time.
Moving swiftly on to the topic today I found that whilst browsing through my iPod the other day I stumbled across a couple of songs which are covers. These are original songs that have a different artist performing them to the original which gives them a unique and individual twist. Personally I love things like this which is why I adore the BBC Live Lounge on Radio 1. Seeing as music is a big part of my life I decided I'd do a little post today on some of my favourite music covers. I've added in the links below to the various YouTube pages so you can have a listen to them yourselves. Please do let me know what you think and of course please leave me further recommendations in the comments below.
P.S I still adore the original Kate Bush version!
Ellie Goulding - Your Song (Elton John)
Placebo - Running Up That Hill (Kate Bush)
Ryan Adams - Wonderwall (Oasis)
The White Stripes - Jolene (Dolly Parton)
Jose Gonzalez - Heartbeats (The Knife Cover)
