This is a new a themed post I’m going to start doing. It’s where I talk a song I really like and then show you guys a few covers of the song by differentt artists. Sometimes it might be an official release by the artist or a live performance or studio recording I found through Youtube.

   Today’s song will be “Use Somebody” by Kings of Leon. Originally I never bothered to listen to the song. I heard it once or twice, but never really payed attention to it. It was like background noise. Then one day while listening to a song by one of my new favorite artists, VV Brown, I saw that she had done an acoustic cover of the song. So. I gave it a listen and really liked it. Then I started liking the original version too. Yesterday I found two more cover versions that I like as well From Bat For Lashes and Pixie Lott (if none of these names sound familiar it’s because all these artists, except for Kings of Leon, are from the UK and haven’t attempted at cracking the North American market yet). Now, in case you wanted to listen these song here they are:
