3a361bf4-8050-41fb-8af4-fd8dc42392e9_zps8dea01fd

Tune In Tuesday is a weekly feature in which bloggers get to showcase another one of their loves, music! The feature was originally created and hosted by Ginger over at GReads! but can now be found over at Kate’s Tales of Books and Bands.

***

It’s cover edition month so here are a few of my picks…

Ed Sheeran feat. Passenger – NO DIGGITY (original artist Blackstreet)

As much as I love, love, love Ed, it’s Passenger (who is flipping AMAZING live btw) that makes this cover work so well.



30 Second to Mars – STAY (original artist Rihanna)

I still think I like Rhianna’s version better but this is a nice take on a beautiful song.



Kodaline – SAME LOVE (original artist Macklemore) Performed at the BBC 1 Live Lounge

*chills*

    1. I love both of them! I've seen them both in concert and I think they are so much better live - if you can find their acoustic videos I think those are better than the recorded stuff. (IMO anyway)

  2. I adore 30 Seconds to Mars. The lead singer's voice just makes me freaking swoon like a teenage girl LOL

  7. I don't think I can even pick a favorite of these! The first one is so awesome because honestly, No Diggity is the last thing I would think of Ed & Passenger singing. Also, 30 Seconds To Mars cover almost reminds me of an 80's Rock Ballad in a way (strange I know, but I couldn't figure out how else to say it. Also, I adore Kodaline's version of that song although I think I would like just about any version of that song. Thanks for sharing :)
