This week I went lazy. Can't remember what I was gonna post. Anyway came across this little diddy.
Ban called Karmin, I think its just a girl and a dude. Anyway the cover Jessie J (ft B.O.B)'s song Price Tag. Its acoustic, the girl sounds alot like Jessie J, but what I really dig is the trombone! Without it, its just another youtube cover.
The trombone gives the song a new dimension and keeps the "pep" of the original.

I couldn't decide which to post as the cover this time. Torn between both of them.
So I'll post both and we'll do a poll, see which one is better.
The song being covered is Coldplay's Yellow. We have well known Sara Bareilles doing an amazing, maybe too simple version. The piano, I had to listen to a couple times in order to appreciate it.
Next up is Jem. Not from Jem and the Holograms. This version is where I'm leaning towards. More effort into the arrangement and more of a lullabye. Both interpretations went softer and more mellow. Both have turned Yellow into Gold in my mind.
