I had a bit of a fight with the internet yesterday evening and it decided not to return to my house until this morning, thus a late Music Monday. No bother–this cover’s worth it. I chose this cover for this Music Monday, because of how Ben Howard & Friends made it an entirely different song. The original song is a crappy, scum from the bottom of the pale of pop hits. But this cover is a gem. The tones, the mood, the cadences…entirely new and gorgeous. And this rendition of the song inspired me.
“Call Me Maybe” went from a mindless gurgle of blathering nothing to a desperate plea of a man struck by beauty. And I want to know more about him. After this cover, you might want to, too. Enjoy.
