10 Songs From The 60’s-90’s Covered By Pop Stars Today

Ke$ha sings Bob Dylan and Miley performs “Landslide”? WHAT IS HAPPENING???

1. Lorde - “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” (Tears for Fears Cover)

The Tears for Fears version from 1985 had a much happier vibe than Lorde’s cover for The Hunger Games Soundtrack.

2. Miley Cyrus - “Landslide” (Fleetwood Mac Cover)

Countless artists have tried covering the Fleetwood Mac classic, but Miley actually did a pretty decent job.

3. Capital Cities - “Nothing Compares 2 U” (Sinéad O’Conner Cover)

Here’s the original version by Sinéad O’Conner from 1990.

4. Ellie Goulding - “Midas Touch” (Midnight Star Cover)

Midnight Star did it first, back in 1986. With a lot more hair.

5. Bon Iver - “I Can’t Make You Love Me” (Bonnie Raitt Cover)

The 1991 Bonnie Raitt hit was covered by Justin Vernon (AKA Bon Iver) back in 2011.

6. Ke$ha - “Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright” (Bob Dylan Cover)

Never thought I would hear Ke$ha performing a Bob Dylan song…but she performed this classic for an Amnesty International special release in 2011.

7. Fitz & The Tantrums - “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” (Eurythmics Cover)

British duo Eurythmics put out their version in 1983.

8. Vampire Weekend - “I’m Going Down” (Bruce Springsteen Cover)

Springsteen calls this one from 1985 “…a forgotten masterpiece”

9. Coldplay - “Billie Jean” (Michael Jackson Cover)

Chris Martin is no Michael Jackson, but it’s still an interesting listen.
