Today’s video is Robyn’s Dancing On My Own.
I already featured a Robyn video recently (Konichiwa Bitches) so won’t add anything to what I’ve already said about her & what I think of her great, underrated pop songs (you can see my post HERE). I just felt like posting this as the dreary cover by Calum Scott was a far bigger hit in the UK than Robyn’s fantastic original & it annoys me every time I hear the passionless cover on the radio.
I’m not going to bitch about all the horrible singer/songwriter bullshit covers of good songs that keep ending up so popular for some reason. If you want to read a good rant by someone who can actually write, I recommend this article by Grace Medford that says exactly how I feel about this sort of thing: When Will Awful, Downbeat Covers of Songs Stop Outperforming the Originals?
I’ll leave you with Robyn’s fantastic original version of Dancing On My Own… 🙂
