This, as they say, is a banger. Glissando in the last minute is on point.

Cover and original:

This was uploaded early last month but has strangely become my favorite cover of hers.

Helps to listen to the original. I would have no idea how to make an acoustic cover of this song. Her solution was to come up with her own clarified/simplified version of the melody which brings her exactly into the sweet spots of her vocal range. The vocal melody in the original actually gets pretty loosey goosey and limp, especially in the back half; I prefer her version. Just.... awesome choices. And a well-done performance that includes some of her better guitar playing.






This is reminiscent of one of her old covers. The original Arctic Monkeys track essentially gives her talk-singing to work with, so she has to come up with her own melody. The bit starting at 1:30 ("to get to your eyes") is especially inspired and completely new.

(Shame she still doesn't seem confident enough to put out any originals songs.)

I wasn't as much of a fan of this one. That's alright, though, considering she had just had a crazy win streak with 5 excellent covers in a row.
