511-

31 Mar

It’s the 5th and final day of my cover crazy theme. And I’m going to finish off with one of my all time favorite covers. One of the reasons that I love covers so much is that they can transcend genres. Case in point, Justin Timberlake’s pop song “Cry Me A River”. His blistering onslaught on Britney Spears was an unexpected gem when he released it. Then it took on a whole new life when it was covered by rap-rock group Lostprophets. Suddenly it had crunch to go along with its bitterness and elevated it to a new level.
