Original songs are always so good. No one can quite hit notes or riffs just like the original artist can. However, these covers that are about to harass the sh*t out of your ears will make you fall in love with covers and love them more than the original song itself. Behold, a new way to enjoy music.
1. Mad World - Taylor John Williams
I hardcore started fangirling as soon as this guy opened his mouth. The tone is amazing.
2. All I Ask - John Saga
I'm almost positive if Adele has a brother, this is him. No questions asked.
3. Cool Kids - Landon Austin
Mother of god. I don't have to be a cool kid. Having half of his talent would be dope too.
4. I Was Made For Loving You - Red and Marks Angel
One word. RIFFS. Do you hear those eargasmic riffs? The jealousy is unreal.
5. Can't Help Falling in Love - Haley Reinhart
Again, one word to describe this video. Beautiful. Beautiful voice. Beautiful story. She's beautiful. Her hair is beautiful. Can I be her for a day? No? K. Cool.
(Song starts at 0:51.)
6. Feelin Good - Wade Graves
Michael Buble or nah?
7. Pillowtalk - SoMo
SoMo always gives us "the feels." Bless his soul. His riffs and tone are almost as good as Zayn's. Just kidding. Nice try, bud.
8. Tonight & Umbrella - Howard Chan
Low-key depressed he didn't leave any contact info. Who am I going to have preform on my wedding?
9. Elastic Heart - Daniela Andrade and KRNFX
They make this look too easy.
10. Jealous - Alex Aiono
Who comes up with this mashup perfection? I clearly wasn't blessed with that gene.
11. West Coast - George Ogilvie
YES. YES. YES.
12. Hallow & Let It Go - Tori Kelly and James Bay
This was probably the best performance of the night. Their voices together are fire. I need them to record this and put it on iTunes A$AP Rocky. So good, y'all.
(Song starts 2:00.)
Now, the real question is, whose version is better? The original artist, or the person doing the cover?
