In the past month recordings of Justin Vernon and Adele covering this song have surfaced, and they’re both swell (though I hated Justin’s live version, the studio version is okay). But the strength and depth of Bonnie’s voice is unmatched, in my opinion, and so to the original I can’t help but return (and sing along with VERY LOUDLY).
Tris I think I reblogged this from you the last time, but I’m doing it again because these are my exact thoughts after hearing both those covers! I have maybe ten songs in my heart that could never be covered better than the original and this is one of them, much as I love Adele and Bon Iver. (srsly tho, go mumble over something else justin.)
DO IT! I promise you won’t regret it. I usually don’t have patience for procedural dramas, but this show is a definite exception. The characters are so well-developed. I love the way the writers approach what could be controversial issues in a truly respectful manner. I love the continuity. I love its intelligence (it doesn’t insult the audience). I love nearly everything about this show.
Even though I never connected these two separates artists, this is a collab that was meant to be from the beginning. Combine the alternative sound of The Knux and the stoner-hop flow of Kid CuDi — its an electrifying tune.
