After the past two weeks or more of covering the covered here at TVD, I’m thinking one could literally fashion an entire blog around cover songs.
Who knew? There’s a zillion of them. Some good, some bad—undoubtedly the worst offender being the pop/punk cover of something tried and true. (Hello Mr. Dando.)
More rare it seems are the stellar songs that have gone uncovered—ditties of distinction untainted by the cover treatment afforded lesser compositions. So, this week we’ll shine a light on a handful of tunes you burgeoning bands and songwriters could take a cue from. Because we WANT you to succeed.
