Let’s be honest – there’s nothing cuter than a twee cover version. The type that might actually provoke exclamations along the “aww, bless!” lines. Sometimes, a song just needs to be lovely in order to win your heart.
We defy you to listen to Belle and Sebastian’s version of Here Comes the Sun, Faith by The Boy Least Likely To or Susanna and the Magical Orchestra’s cover of Crazy, Crazy Nights without being completely and utterly charmed.
L is also for... Live: Maybe it’s a spontaneity thing and maybe it’s a royalties thing but live is certainly where the majority of covers are performed. And who can deny the sozzled pleasure that’s to be found in seeing an unexpected cover being dropped into an encore?
