Gee, Hump Day Jam Post Hiatus! Sweet!

18 Aug

Blog world!  It has been far too long!  My big sister got married on Saturday, and my life has been nothing but a whirl of moving and changing since.  It was a beautiful event that went off without a hitch, but I immediately made my way back to SC the morning after.  This is my first chance to sit and reflect and indulge in a steady source of internet…and it is at the Clemson Starbucks.  Joy!

I immediately logged into the Hype Machine to check out the latest scoop on good tunage.  I was pleasantly surprised to find another phenomenal cover of Kid Cudi and MGMT’s “Pursuit of Happiness” on the popular play list.  I have already fallen for a live cover version performed by Lissie, but this one has slow, steady, almost beachy sound to it that is new and unique.

Once again, I am astonished by just how talented some of these cover artists are with these songs.  The original version of this song is already one of my favorites (in fact, it’s my default ringtone), but I am truly impressed by these reworks.  New twists and turns have taken this melody to new heights.
