(re)covers I

Adoro uma boa versão. Geralmente, para ser boa, deve distinguir-se bem do original e, na maior parte das vezes, valer por ela própria. Gosto de ouvir intérpretes que nunca imaginaria a cantar determinada música, tão diferente do seu estilo original, a pegar nela e transformá-la em algo surpreendente. Logo percebi que dificilmente conseguiria ter apenas uma compilação de versões - porque há tantas e tão boas! Esta será, provavelmente, a primeira de muitas... espero que gostem.

E já agora, boa Páscoa para todos!

I love a good cover. Usually, to be good, it must be very different from the original, and most of the times, to be worth by itself. I like to find interpreters that I'd never imagined to hear singing a certain song, so different from their original style, to take it and transform it into something suprising. I soon realized I hardly could have only one playlist with covers - because there are so many and so good! This will probably be the first of many... I hope you enjoy it.

And by the way, happy Easter everyone!

    I love them. There's something beautiful about a good cover. I think it's humble and also brave.
