Birdy’s A Team

18 Oct


Bearing in mind Jasmine Bogaerde, or Birdy as she’s more commonly known is only 16 years old, she’s doing pretty well. I just remembered this nice cover of Ed Sheerans’ A Team, a perfect example of why I prefer female singers to male singers. It’s got a bit more spark.

Florence Covers

13 Jan

It was a busy year for Florence & the Machine, with a massively popular album, Mercury nomination, huge amount of live gigs and seemingly being untouchable, she rounded off the year with Jools Holland covering the great My Baby Just Cares by Nina Simone. Also below is her great cover of Robert Palmer’s Addicted to Love. I’m hoping she’s as busy this year as she was last…

This is apparently from AGES ago, it’s a really nice B-Side with Kid Harpoon and Florence covering Bruce Springsteen’s I’m going Down recorded for BBC6 Music.

The Gossip Cover Aaliyah

MMM, a complete contradiction to this really cool and ‘gentle’ cover of Aaliyah, that’s Beth Ditto’s arse for you. And here’s their version of the song:
