Each of these covers is a lovely surprise, both in song selection and in arrangement. These are such terrific, inventive versions that they somehow make me fonder of the originals.h


CHVRCHES covers “It’s Not Right But It’s Okay” (Whitney Houston)h


James Vincent McMorrow covers “Higher Love” (Steve Winwood)

John Legend covers “Dancing in the Dark” (Bruce Springsteen)

In these interludes,  poet and singer-songwriter  Hannah Stephenson invites you to eavesdrop on the music bouncing around her brain. She’d love to hear your thoughts, your inner soundtrack, and what band inspired that shrine in your bedroom.

    Also recommended: The Civil Wars cover of “Billie Jean”. Inner soundtrack–well, I’m sure it was classy, until all memory of it was obliterated by a sports talk radio show that decided to play “Sometimes When We Touch”, as sung by boxing champion Manny Pacquiao. I never thought I’d say this, but “Thank god for autotune”.
