I have talked about music covers before and now, before the year actually ends, I want to share everyone my favorite music covers for 2013. They are not really new songs but it was my favorite for the year of 2013. I hope everyone could enjoy listening to them as much as I did, too.
1. Imagine Me Without You by Akama Miki
This has always been one of my favorites. The lyrics says a lot about how I felt with my someone special – the first time, I heard it – I instantly fell in love with the song. Akama Miki is so young but she has grown to be a beauty, plus, she has a really beautiful voice, too!
2. All I Want For Christmas Is You by Against the Currents
Against the Currents did a music cover on Mariah Carey’s Christmas Song but for some reason, I ended up their version better. I like how it was a Christmas song – yet there is a love and rocking theme to it. It’s very new and I ended up keep repeating the song, over and over again!
3. My Only Wish This Year by Britney Spears
I know Britney Spears might have been outdated to some, if not most people – but I am proud to say, I have always love Britney Songs. I could still remember that her songs are what inspired me during my teen years as well. Her Christmas song was actually one of my favorites during 2012 – and still my favorite to listen even throughout 2013. The lyrics brings out the inner child in me – in some way or another. Try to listen, I’m sure you’ll get what I mean.
4. Just a Dream by Sam Tsui & Christina Grimmie
This song was originally by Nelly but I like this music cover by Sam Tsui and Christina Grimmie better. It was so relaxing to hear their voices – very soothing and it all blended well to my ears. For some reason, I like their version better than Nelly’s. It was also fascinating to see the instrument play they had all throughout the video.
5. Part of Your World from The Little Mermaid
I know, I know – I am too old to for Disney Songs but I can’t help it. I’ve re-watched The Little Mermaid again and again this year. I don’t know why but ever since, I was fascinated with mermaids. I was drawn to mermaids that I had to re-watch the film one too many this during the year. I honestly believe mermaids exist whether that’s true or not – I believe in them and that is that.
I am such a frustrated singer and maybe that is why I love and appreciate music covers. I’d probably make my own music cover when I have the guts to do so – haha! I just realized that making a music cover is much more complicated that I thought, you need good quality materials for it such as a camera, a mic and a recorder, too. Speaking of recorders, cakewalk sonar at musicians friend would be perfect! Plus, more practice and passion towards singing and music is needed too!
