Thanks to the expansive trove of treasures offered by Netflix, I have been introduced to various cable shows I would have never watched otherwise. I’ve gone through almost all of USA Network’s original programming (some of the best cable shows out there!), and now I’ve moved onto Syfy TV with the likes of Z Nation and Haven.
There was an episode of Haven last season in which a relatively unknown cover of an old song served to heighten the emotionally bittersweet conclusion. The song and the scene continued to play in my mind for days on end, so I did what any nincompoop would do and looked it up online.
I present to you: “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” by Sweet Talk Radio.
Isn’t it hauntingly beautiful? Months after tracking down and listening to the track in its entirety for the first time, this song still plays repeatedly in my household, my car, and in my head. It’s perfect for those contemplative moments wherein one becomes lost in memories and possibilities.
Or, even just to have on in the background as you take a moment to relax. 🙂
Do you know of other covers where an artist takes a popular song, totally rocks it, and makes it his/her/their own? (The first that pops into my head is Tori Amos’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”)
Johnny Cash’s covers of NIN Hurt and Soundgarden’s Rusty Cage spring immediately to mind. Amazing covers he made completely his own.
Wow, those were amazing! Thanks for the recs!
