Tune in Tuesday with Katelyn: I even fell for that stupid love song

Tune in Tuesday - Cover EditionI’m really warming up to the cover edition of Tune in Tuesday now. As you may recall, I was a bit flummoxed by this theme initially, since I didn’t think I could come up with four covers I liked more than the originals. But I’m starting to appreciate covers a little bit more now…it’s not always a question of being better than the original song, but rather presenting that song to listeners in a new way. So today I’m sharing a cover that I really like, of a song that I don’t really like! The cover artist is Ted Leo, whom I love love love. Seriously, he is one of my all-time favorite musical artists, and I wholeheartedly recommend that you check out lots and lots of his stuff! (I’ll undoubtedly feature some of his original songs in a future Tune in Tuesday post, so stay tuned for that.) And in the meantime, here’s his cover of Kelly Clarkson’s “Since U Been Gone” (with a little bit of “Maps” by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs)! As I said, I don’t particularly like the original, but when I heard Ted Leo’s version, I was like, “Hey, this song’s not so bad after all!” Sometimes all you need is a fresh perspective. πŸ™‚

      It’s too high for me, that’s for sure…and poor Ted really had to shoot for the stars with his falsetto! I will say that his voice sounds better in its normal octave, but I think it’s cool that he goes for it sometimes! πŸ™‚
