music

This is crazy.

I heard an amaaaaazing cover of that horribly earwormy "Call Me Maybe" song earlier, and it got me thinking about covers that change the genre of the song entirely. Off the top of my head, I'd recommend Call Me Maybe covered by Ben Howard (this is the one I heard today that blew my mind), Whatever You Like covered by Anya Marina, Umbrella covered by Vanilla Sky, and my personal favorite, Firestarter covered by Jimmy Eat World.

How about you guys? What are your favorite musical reinterpretations?
