Just the other day I was explaining to someone why I sometimes like the Glee version of songs better than the original. I’m a sucker for harmonies, and the way Glee arranges them really get to me.
Same with today’s song. I know it’s nearly sacrilege to say that you don’t love something that Kate Bush has done, and maybe it’s because I heard this version of the song before hers (yes, I have big gaps in my musical education), but to me this version is not just a cover, it’s a reimagining. It breathes so much life into the song. It makes it unforgettable. (Really, I dare you to get it out of your head.)
So, without further ado, The Futureheads covering “Hounds of Love.”
They’re one of my favorite bands, and one of the most fun bands to see (and travel to see) in concert. It’s been way, way, WAY too long since they were out here, though!
Do you ever like covers better than the originals? What are you listening to today?
