Brighton UK chanteuse Sophie Madeleine turns in a capable cover of a fave OBG radio classic “Spooky”, which was first popularized by The Classics IV and later Dusty Springfield. Sophie’s careful coos and soft ukelele strums form a cool counterpoint to “Spooky”‘s, well spooky content and feel. Spin it.

Think this one speaks for itself. Adele covered Bonnie Raitt’s classic ballad during her set today at London’s iTunes Festival. Just a really beautiful track. Tip to Music From Go to Whoa for the stream.
Holy shit! Daft Beatles puts the perfect melody (Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”) on the perfect beat (Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams”) the result is nothing short of mindblowing. Huge props to our friends at Hard Candy on the mix!Adele vs Eurythmics: Rolling In Sweet Dreams (Daft Beatles Mix)
Our girl Adele gets a little funky c/o of LA mixman Plastic Plates. Turn this one way up.
Jamie rolled into BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge earlier in the week cutting this acoustic cover of Adele’s newest UK chart topper “Someone Like You”. Jamie’s version oozes soul. Get into it below.Jamie Woon – Someone Like You (Adele Cover)
“Rolling in the Deep” continues to just keep giving, whether Jamie XX or Villa or now via John Legend. The song’s melody is so strong, so soulful, it’s able to translate itself to just about any genre, arrangement, or instrumentation. Here, our man John Legend takes a song that already had strong blues and gospel influence and propells it straight into spirituals territory. Using a purely a cappella arrangement; a chorus of joyful voices frame the song’s verses and uplift it’s choruses making for a sound that altogether is very powerful.

Picked up this new remix of blahblahblahscience’s song of the year off Annie Mac’s show on Fri. Annie Mac wasn’t DJ’ing, two other British blokes were, but this huge remix was the standout of the show.Adele – Rolling in the Deep (Villa Remix)
Adele kills it again. Her go at the iconic Cure ballad is, for lack of a better word, breathtaking. A soulful organ provides the guts, subtle string figures fix the frame. Adele is on another level right now.
