Star-crossed covers

As a follow up to this post, here are some of my favorite crossover covers..

 

Boy/girl duet The Bird and the Bee turn Rihanna’s dance hit into a sublime little music box tune. Very pretty.

From her 2001 album Girl Versions, Emm Gryner’s brilliant rework of a Def Leppard classic. Love the arrangement…and that voice!

A blast from the past, Strawberry Switchblade’s 1985 take on “Jolene”

Can’t beat the original when it’s Sigur Ros, but pretty stellar nonetheless.
