This week's playlist will give you a new kind of experience. Covers of popular songs are extremely interesting to me. Not only do you get to hear how a person wishes a song was produced, but you also get to experience hearing an old song for the first time all over again. A lot of covers are identical to the original. That's not my kind of cover. I live for the covers that almost totally change the song and allow me to love a classic song in a whole new way. One of my favorite covers on this playlist is Taylor John Williams' version of Kanye West's Heartless. TJW completely alters the original feel of the Kanye hit. This kind of alteration shows incredible talent and creativity. Kudos to you, Taylor John Williams. The Civil War's rendition of Michael Jackson's Billie Jean gives me life. The amount of emotion they put behind MJ's famous lyrics lets you listen to the song in a completely new way. Love it. (PS. Please get back together, Civil Wars!!!!)

I hope your ears enjoy the playlist I put together for you this week. Leave your thoughts on covers in the comments!

Who doesn't love classic rock?!  I know I do. My father made sure classic rock would be one of the most influential genres in my collection. Any time we were in the car he was quizzing me on Robert Plant & Freddy Mercury's voices and I often had to name the song or band within the first 20 seconds of the song to prove my knowledge. I'm one of the few 18 year old girls that has her car radio on the classic rock station more often than country or pop, and I love it! I hope you all love classic rock as much as I do. I would love for you to leave your favorite rock songs or artists in the comments. I'm sure I'll add to this playlist in the future!
