A good cover song can evoke some serious feels. Exhibit A: Lady Gaga at the Oscars.
Sometimes, they’re so good we forget who even sang the original. Exhibit B: Johnny Cash and “Hurt.” (Sorry, Trent Reznor.)
For this month’s installment of PureWow’s Jam-Packed (highly-curated playlists for you, dear reader), we’re bringing you an especially mellow one featuring our favorite cover songs.
Wondering what’s on tap? Two sisters channeling Charli XCX, the Civil Wars taking on “Billie Jean” and an instrumental version of Sam Smith’s “Stay with Me”...on violin. It’s the kind of thing that’s just the right accompaniment to your workday.
Looking for something a little more upbeat? Here are few that topped our list but couldn’t be found on Spotify.
