Introducing… our first ever post recommended by a reader! Sorry, I know a lot of you have been sending in requests and recommendations, but I’ve just been lazy and haven’t gotten to them all. BUT we do appreciate you taking the time to submit, and hopefully we’ll get to them all soon. Keep ’em coming!
This cover comes one of the guys in a video cover of Decatur by Sufjan Stevens a while back. I must admit I’m not the biggest fan of the Dave Matthews Band, but some of the melodies hit a good spot in me, and this is one of them. I didn’t know the song Baby Blue until it was recommended to me, but it’s got a nice relaxing tone, much like Crash Into Me, a favorite of mine back in high school.
What I really like about this cover from youtuber leavingtheisland is that it keeps the soothing and peaceful beat, but doesn’t seem to miss any of the layers. The original has got a lot more instruments in the background that create a nice, full, orchestral sound, but this cover reminds me of what it’s like to sit back on the porch and listen to a good folkish song in the presence of friends. Well done on the guitar, so check it out here:
Here’s the original: Baby Blue by Dave Matthews
