Cover songs are amazing as a concept. In a way they are like toying with and creating new versions of amazing songs. The artists, who normally do the covers of songs, know that they are playing with fire. These covers tend to go both ways, considering the point-of-reference for them is the original songs themselves. The World Wide Web houses some of very talented cover artists. In this post we have collated five such artist videos.
Hailing from Washington DC, Vidya is a singer who mostly does bollywood and pop mash-ups while giving some amazing twists to the pop songs. Her channel on YouTube named VidyaVox has an amazing collection of songs. However, her covers for Cheap Thrills and This is what you came for are my personal favourites. Her mash-ups are soothing and are perfect mix of Bollywood-top and the pop-top songs. Here’s the link to her cover of This is what you came for with a twist of table.

2. Conor Maynard
The UK based cover artist with a brilliant voice his channel, which goes by the same name, has numerous videos of covers of most of the popular songs. He can be seen in collaboration with his friend Anthony for some of the videos, also. Below is a cover of the song Hello. He is one of the few cover artists who have managed to keep the essence and the style of the song intact.

3. Luciana Zogbi
I have been following this artist on YouTube since some time now. A personal favourite from Sao Pualo, with her beautiful voice she has done covers of songs from almost every era and genre. The list of great songs from this one is endless. However, my personal favourites are Let it Go- Frozen, All of me- John Legend and Sweet Child of mine by Guns ‘n’ Roses (this one will blow your mind away).

4. Postmodern Jukebox
An amazing group of singers and musicians that makes its own version of songs they cover. They have done various mash-ups from different eras and genres and their videos are a delight to watch. If you have ever wondered what the all-time favourite songs would sound like in a period or vintage jazz, Postmodern Jukebox is for you. The one video that I am listing here is an apt example of the same genre. The song though is almost the same but is entirely different in a better way. Here is the band’s version of You Give Love a Bad Name- Bon Jovi.

5. Lindsey Stirling
This charismatic established artist with maddening Violin skill belongs to Arizona. Her collaborations as well as her own compositions are breath taking. Her covers take the song to the next level. While each one of her covers/compositions is a masterpiece in itself, her cover for Radioactive- Imagine Dragons is stupefying. Be ready to be mesmerised.
