Are you all sufficiently Daft Punk crazed? I know I am. It’s the perfect album to welcome in the Summer of 2013. (Last year my summer album was Metric’s, Synthetica. Mmm. So good.) Today this cello cover of “Get Lucky” crossed my path. I must say, I’m quite taken with it. Wash. Rinse. Repeat. Shall we?
Cover songs are often a controversial topic among music lovers. I see both sides of the topic, but I myself am very PRO-cover. Inspiration is found in nature, in a kind word, in a thoughtfully penned poem, in the laughter of children. Different things inspire different people at different times, but I think music is universally the most inspirational medium. Musicians who are just starting out hone their craft by learning covers that inspire them, songs originally played by people they admire. I love that! I love the respect and reverence you can hear in a thoughtfully done cover. I especially adore it when a song is reworked and has new life breathed into it. [original source]
