YouTube song covers that don't suck (Vol. 1)

Posted on

Every now and again when I’m searching for the video of a song on YouTube, I’ll intentionally click on a cover. Why? Because there’s only a 1 percent chance that it won’t suck, and I like testing my luck. Imagine my surprise when I hit two good ones in a row last night:

Kyle Cameron‘s cover of Prince’s (and Cyndi Lauper’s) “When You Were Mine”

Tenille‘s cover of Foo Fighters’ (and Paramore’s) “My Hero”

Also not to be missed, the 14-year-old’s renditions of Pink’s “Who Knew”and Dixie Chicks’ “Travelin’ Soldier.”

Have you stumbled onto covers you’re not ashamed to recommend?
