"and no one is ever gonna love you more than i do..."

21 Jan 2012

Whenever I find out that my favourite song is covered by other artists, I usually go to YouTube to listen to the cover version. The same happens whenever I find out that my favourite song is, in fact, a cover (as happened in She & Him's Ridin' in My Car, which turned out to originally be NRBQ's song; and Meaghan Smith's Here Comes Your Man turned out to originally be Pixies').

I first listened to No One's Gonna Love You by Band of Horses in a mixtape I got from Kaelah. I instantly fell in love with it. Months later, I found out that the song was covered by Cee Lo Green. I searched YouTube for the song and it turns out that each version has its own official music video. I personally like the original version of the song, but I have to say that I like Cee Lo Green's video much better. It tells a story of a couple in a road trip after being kicked out from their house, while Band of Horses' version only shows a footage of the band playing in a show plus their daily life (including brushing teeth, showering, drinking, sleeping, and smashing bottles on each other's head). What's your say?









Sincerely,
