This week I'm a little obsessed with Royals by Lorde and the covers that abound because genre-stomping covers make me happy. Here is the original and six amazing covers.
And now for the "Sad Clown with a Golden Voice" version. Not kidding. It's a little swing and brings a melancholy note to this tune.
Here's the obligatory-yet-awesome violin cover.
The Mora Mora rock version, with male vocals. (Because yay gender transgression!) These dudes have the best expressions, and they bring a sardonic twist to their cover.
Walk Off the Earth brings multi-gendered vocals and a neat ukelele progression. Watch how they switch instruments during the video. Neato!
The all-ladies acapella choir version. I love how saucy these ladies look, the female beatboxers, and the downright angelic harmonics.
