I have like a 6 hour playlist on Spotify of just acoustic covers. I’ll just post a couple of lesser known ones that I’m currently digging.

The Cranberries “Dreams” covered by a colab group Irish Women In Harmony:


Beyoncé’s “XO” covered by John Mayer:


Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” covered by The Civil Wars:


OutKast’s “Hey Ya” covered by Obediah Parker:


Kanye West’s “Gold Digger” covered by Xavier Dunn:


Radiohead’s “Creep” covered by Daniela Andrade:

Disturbed pretty much nails every cover they do but their version of "The Sound of Silence" is one of the best.

Here's a couple of my favorites from each end of the spectrum.

Wild Horses by The Sundays


And Nobody's Fault by Testament

Covers where each version is spectacular is a much narrower category.

Not the best cover ever, but Phoebe Bridgers doing a cover of "That Funny Feeling" from Bo Burnham's inside, and the subsequent video of him watching the entire audience singing and laughing along made me very happy.

"Maybe next time, I sit on the couch and watch you"
