#WildCardWednesday: Vanessa Carlton – ‘Dreams’

Vanessa Carlton is probably most notable for her 2002 smash hit, ‘A Thousand Miles but she is so much more than that!

With 5 studio albums now under her belt, she has certainly been busy writing and recording music and touring the world. She is also now beginning to prepare a new album. However, until then, she will begin to release one cover song a month (starting with a cover of Robyn‘s ‘Call Your Girlfriend’ in March 2018), while she continues work on her upcoming sixth album.

April 2018’s cover is the huge, classic Fleetwood Mac song, ‘Dreams’. This is a very close rendition to the original but with much more haunting vocals and instrumentals, created by the subtle reverb on Carlton’s voice and the guitars. Whilst covers tend to divide opinions and people often state that they “don’t live up to the original”, this is a superb modernisation of the track and pays a brilliant homage to the original; well done Vanessa Carlton! I can’t wait to see which cover you do next!

No music video has been released, but the audio video can be seen and heard below.

Conor Maynard has recently been hard at work, recording a whole bunch of covers for a special album released, cleverly titled, Covers.

The YouTube sensation found fame by uploading cover videos to YouTube, and as such, continues to do so.

This version of Shawn Mendes‘ Number 1 hit, is stripped back and ballad-like – it’s a beautiful stance on an incredible track and has given a different feel entirely. This re-imagining, also goes to show just how amazing Conor Maynard‘s voice is…and also, how much we need a new originals album from him!

What are your thoughts on this cover? Do you like Conor Maynard’s voice? How badly do you want to hear a new originals album from him? Please share the link and post your own #MellowMonday choices in a comment below.

I LOVE THIS SONG!

I have had this song on repeat for about a week – it’s just so damn good! I honestly don’t really like Rihanna‘s version but this has made me love the track, with it’s awesome intensity, punchy guitars and powerful beat.

The Maine are an Arizona-based quintet who formed in 2007. Since then, they have had whole string of albums and released a couple of cover EPs.

This track, ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’, is taken from their EP, Covers (Side B) and it is all well worth a listen – they’ve actually managed to do a better job of those tracks than the originals!

What do you think of The Maine? Have you heard any of their other tracks? Do you prefer a different one of their covers? Hit us up in a comment below or via our social medias!
