youtube covers

Posted in video by hydeph on April 3, 2009

Once in a while, I come across some great covers on Youtube of favorite songs. Everyone seems to have either guitar or a voice but never both (others are woefully untalented and just suck…but keep trying!). Bravo to you beginners who post your cover during the high after a crush writes on your wall then get feedback like U ARE SHIT. Proceed to FML, guys. I’ve skimmed some of the cream (imho) below.
Kings of Leon – Use SomebodyAmazon.comLast.fm download the original

Radiohead – IdiotequeAmazon.comLast.fm download the original

Rachel’s – Water from the Same SourceAmazon.comLast.fm        download the original

gihm is a slugger — he’s batting 5/5 on almost all of his videos. Also check out his múm, GSYBE!, and EITS.

I had some pretty loose criteria for this playlist. The aim was to put together songs that have a gentle acoustic feel to them without necessarily being by solo singer-songwriters. I just threw in songs if they sounded stripped, featured acoustic guitar, or simply piqued my interest. Happy Spring.

Download a zip of the mix (10 songs, 45 mins.) with the playlist file.
