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

Photo from Andre’s Instagram

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.

Okay, so this isn’t actually a cover but the very demo of the song sung by Keri Hilson who wrote the song herself along with Nate Hills, Marcella Araica and James Washington.

This is actually one of my favorite tracks in the Blackout album! Also, don’t you just loved its music video?

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.

Cover Thursday – Lorde’s Liability by Matty Queen Bee

I dare you to to watch the full video.  It’s fucking incredible!  This was posted last March 2017 but I’ve had the “Melodrama” album by Lorde just last July and fell for this song and the rest of the album eventually. And just this weekend, I was binge-watching covers of the songs in the album and stumbled upon this again, fucking incredible cover! Click away now you bitches…

One, two

Baby really hurt me
Crying in the taxi
He don’t wanna know me
Says he made the big mistake of dancing in my storm
Says it was poison
So I guess I’ll go home
Into the arms of the girl that I love
The only love I haven’t screwed up
She’s so hard to please
But she’s a forest fire
I do my best to meet her demands
Play at romance, we slow dance
In the living room, but all that a stranger would see
Is one girl swaying alone
Stroking her cheek

They say, “You’re a little much for me
You’re a liability
You’re a little much for me”
So they pull back, make other plans
I understand, I’m a liability
Get you wild, make you leave
I’m a little much for
E-a-na-na-na, everyone

The truth is I am a toy
That people enjoy
‘Til all of the tricks don’t work anymore
And then they are bored of me
I know that it’s exciting
Running through the night, but
Every perfect summer’s
Eating me alive until you’re gone
Better on my own

They say, “You’re a little much for me
You’re a liability
You’re a little much for me”
So they pull back, make other plans
I understand, I’m a liability
Get you wild, make you leave
I’m a little much for
E-a-na-na-na, everyone

They’re gonna watch me
Disappear into the sun
You’re all gonna watch me
Disappear into the sun

XOXO,
