A great cover can come from two very different interpretations — you can faithfully recreate the original artist’s mood or take the song in a totally different direction. Whatever the creative idea, hearing a new version of an old favorite never really loses its lustre.
For this playlist, and in honor of one of our partners-in-crime for The Beehive, Bumble, we wanted to highlight the ladies who are crushing the cover game. Whether it’s total classics like Janis Joplin’s version of “Me and Bobby McGee”, Sinéad O’Connor’s take on “Nothing Compares 2 U”, and Aretha Franklin’s “Respect” or newer tracks from the likes of The National and Bon Iver, the songs here are all beautiful renditions of incredible songs. Stream the playlist below, and enjoy!
