Music That Inspires You

Today we’re doing a slight change of things. . .and by that I mean we’re doing the original vs. the cover. Now, I’ll state that both are great in their own right, after all, it’s about the music and enjoying it. This will be a week of taking your ears on an exploration journey. I hope you all enjoy the sound!




The Postal Service – Such Great Heights


Streetlight Manifesto – Such Great Heights [Cover]


Note: I did not put Iron and Wine up here for reasons. . .Most have heard of it, plus it was posted already. So enjoy something new. 😉





New Order – Blue Monday


Orgy – Blue Monday [Cover]





Michael Jackson – Smooth Criminal [Radio Edit]


Alien Ant Farm – Smooth Criminal [Cover]





Bruce Springsteen – Blinded by The Light


Manfred Mann’s Earth Band – Blinded by The Light [Cover]*


*Yes, this is the cover, not the other way around.





Bob Seger – Turn The Page


Golden Earring – Turn the Page [Cover]


Note: I didn’t include Metallica because. . .well. . .who hasn’t heard of it?
