Best covers of Crowdies songs

Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus?! I dreamt it was over...

On the other hand, a really good cover of DDIO is by Flock of Dimes w/ Sylvan Esso 

Also, FAYF by Glenn Richards

 

 

+1 to Sylvan Esso. I continue to hate the Grande/Cyrus versions (any of them). It's clear by her singing and demeanor that Miley Cyrus has no idea of the meaning of "my possessions were causing me suspicion but there's no proof." A well-meaning performance by a couple of talented but callow kids, who embody the worst of modern pop vocal affectations.

the bar is pretty high for covers of crowded house songs ... but which ones do you like ? here's a couple that pass muster with me ... others ? 

Don't Dream it's Over - I am Kawahi

Don't Dream it's Over - Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus

Fall at your feet - Boy & Bear 

Into Temptation - Paul Kelly (and some bloke called Neil Finn)

How Will You Go

 

I enjoyed the instrumental tinkerings of the Boy & Bear cover, but was not a fan of the vocals at all.

I still haven't listened to them, nor do I want to. I appreciate the charitable nature of the covers, I just don't like feeling disappointment with a Finn song.

Here are my favorite Crowded House/Neil Finn covers ... with YouTube videos below.

1. Ron Sexsmith & Jesse Cook - Fall At Your Feet

2. Oh Mercy - I'm Possessed

3. Jeremy Carter - Nobody Wants To

4. Joel Brigginshaw - Not The Girl

5. Marillion - She Goes On

6. Kenneth August - Song of The Lonely Mountain

7. Diesel + The Girl - Fall At Your Feet

8. Susan Boyle - Don't Dream It's Over

9. Boy & Bear (ft Bernard Fanning) - Don't Dream It's Over

10. Shawn Colvin - Private Universe

11. Kit Richardson - Private Universe
