Cover Thursday: Taylor Swift’s White Horse by Drew Jenkinson

This one’s here is one of the oldies but goodies songs of Taylor Swift back when she was still “the old Taylor Swift” and apparently, the dead one now. This is also probably one of my favorite songs of TayTay aside from Tim McGraw. I’ve been watching several covers this week and thought that it’d be interesting to hear a male cover version of it and I think I’ve just found the best one with Drew Jenkinson tweaking the song which I thought made it waaay better! And it was made a decade ago!!!!

I mean, you’re welcome! ❤

Cover Thursday: Sufjan Stevens’ Mystery of Love by Elisa Jane

Since “Call Me By Your Name” just had its commercial release last week in Manila, I thought of featuring this beautiful and haunting song by singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens from the movie. But since this is a Cover Thursday, I present to you Elisa Jane’s wonderful cover of the song.

Enjoy!

Cover Thursday: Troye Sivan’s The Good Side by Sneha

This is by far my favorite cover of Troye Sivan’s new single “The Good Side” I loved the simplicity of Sneha’s voice as well as the intimacy of the use of the ukulele to accompany this heartbreaking song.

“The Good Side” available now: https://TroyeSivan.lnk.to/TheGoodSideYd

Written by Troye Sivan, Leland, Bram Inscore, Allie X, Ariel Rechtshaid, and Jack Latham
Produced by Ariel Rechshaid, Bram Inscore, and Jam City

LYRICS:
I got the good side of things,
Left you with both of the rings,
My fingers danced,
And swayed in the breeze,
The change in the wind took you down to your knees

I got the good side of you,
Sent it out into the blue,
The people danced,
To the sound of your heart,
The world sang along to it falling apart

But I sympathise,
And I recognise,
And baby, I apologise,
That I got the good side,
The good side of things

I got the good side of life,
Travelled the universe twice,
So many thoughts I wanted to share,
But I didn’t call because it wouldn’t be fair

Then I got the good side of new,
Found arms to fall right into,
I know how it looked, It wasn’t the plan,
And someday I hope that you’ll understand,

That I sympathise,
And I recognise,
And baby, I apologise,
That I got the good side,
The good side of things

I’m sure we’ll meet in the spring,
And catch up on everything,
I’ll say I’m proud of all that you’ve done,
You taught me the ropes, and you taught me to love

But I sympathise,
And I recognise,
And baby, I apologise,
That I got the good side,
The good side of things

Sympathise,
Recognise,
Apologise,
That I got the good side,
The good side of things

Cover Thursday: Lorde’s Melodrama Album Medley by Andre van Drunen

For my Cover Thursday this week, I’ll be featuring this medley by Andre van Drunen singing all of the song’s in Lorde’s latest release, Melodrama. It is also  a way for me to honor said album because it only got a single Grammy nomination for Album of the Year. Seriously, what a travesty! I thought Lorde will be lording over the Grammy next year!

Listen to Andre’s awesome cover of the album and don’t forget to subscribe!!!

When I first heard @sarabareilles version of Chandelier I knew I had to sing it just like that. She used this instrument that seemed like a small guitar and It was so good that I literally had to discover it and buy it. It is called baritone ukulele and it gives an amazing sound. Thank you, Sara, for being such an inspiration to me through many years. LINK IN BIO — Quando eu ouvi a versão de Chandelier da @sarabareilles eu imediatamente me apaixonei e fiquei louco pra descobrir o que danado era aquele instrumento que parecia um violão pequeno. Depois de muita pesquisa (nos comentários do youtube) descobri que era um ukulele barítono e já procurei em todo canto onde comprar ele aqui. Só consegui pela internet, mas desde então tem sido meu companheiro de muitas músicas. Sara Bareilles é uma artista que eu considero completa e é uma grande inspiração pra mim. LINK NA BIO

Cover Thursday: Sam Smith’s Too Good At Goodbyes by Spencer Sutherland

So, Spencer just posted this a couple of days ago on his official Youtube channel and I don’t think I am the only one here who thinks that he deserves to stay longer in the X Factor. But it’s over now and the good thing that came off of it is that we discovered this super amazing vocalist that we didn’t even know existed who’s actually been doing music for a while now! How’s that?

Here’s Spencer’s take on Sam Smith’s comeback single, Too Good At Goodbyes.

Cover Thursday: Taylor Swift’s Look What You Made Me Do By Our Last Night

I really didn’t get into this song until a week ago when it felt like an appropriate theme song for my current predicament at work with people being all fake and shit. I guess, I’m one of those people who loves expressing my emotions through songs lol. Anyway, my Cover Thursday is from a band called Our Last Night You with their heavy metal rendition of Taylor Swift’s comeback single “Look What You Made Me Do.” I honestly liked their version more, truth be told.
