I always liked that song. Gettin paid is also my forte so It was nice to hear a song about a kindred spirit.

First intro to Mike Rosenberg, aka Passenger. Really nice voice!

In addition, curve is still the word and spin is still the verb. So it's nice to know that some things just don't change.

No idea who FiFi and Jules are but I explored that channel a little and found a decent cover of It Wasn't Me and a damn good cover of Gangsta's Paradise.

I like this fine if I don't watch the guy with dark hair sing. I don't know what it is, but certain singers' voices are kind of infuriating when they're paired with the face of the singer, and all of them that I can think of are variations on this kind of white-guy-sings-smooth-soul. John Mayer. Jason Mraz. The ginger is cool though. He doesn't bother me for some reason.

I can't be the only one who decided to create new playlists filled only with music from the 90's and protesting everything else. It feels.. so comfortable.

Needs more Thrift Shop. But very very nice to listen to and totally transports me back to being 12 too. I guess we're all the same age here.

13 here. Loved the song back then. Still do.

Not too keen on the first singer. Too much like a nervous Damian Rice for my liking.

i dont think acoustic covers of rap songs are necessarily racist, just that they represent a crime against humanity on the level of racism

Does Ed Sheeran really play a Little Martin? It's so tiny.

Jesse Thorn mentioned Domino's "Sweet Potato Pie" on Twitter the other day, and my brain exploded from nostalgia.

Did not enjoy; will not recommend. Bad seller. A minus MINUS.

There must be something better for them to cover; maybe a song next time.

I love both of the songs covered; this made me enjoy them less as I will remember this performance. It's "Devo Head like a Hole" cover bad.

Ah, to each their own though.

I like the cover by singer-songwriter Lynx (slyt). I couldn't find a better video, but I heard her do it in New Orleans this past fall, and it was gorgeous. The crowd was really into it.

This Sheeran fella is pretty adorable right now, but at about 30, he's gonna be complete panty remover. Also, talented. Good cover(s), ginger man.
