This post may or may not be a stall tactic. You see, it’s 13 days into the new year and I still haven’t posted my Favorite Finds of 2013. I know y’all are waiting with great anticipation. [wink] If you keep up over at my facebook page I’ve dropped a few spoiler alerts. It IS in progress and I had hoped to have it live today, but I don’t think it’s going to happen. It’s nearing 2 a.m. as I write this and my day begins in less than 5 hours. Soon, my dear ones. Soon.
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a song for the cover series, I think I’ll do that now.
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]
Mighty Oaks have been one of my most cherished discoveries of this past year and yes, they’ll be on the soon-to-come list of Favorite Finds. [Yet another spoiler alert!] For now, kick back and bask in this beautiful cover of Rihanna’s, Stay. If you’re jonesin’ for some good musical loving I think this will satiate you for a bit.
