Over the past couple of weeks I have been spending a lot of time listening to Daughter, a British folk group fronted by Elena Tonra that has a great indie sound. I particularly have enjoyed one of their songs that I found online, Get Lucky. Let’s listen……..
Much to my surprise, I discovered that Daughter’s version of Get Lucky was a cover version of a Daft Punk song. Daft Punk doesn’t play the kind of music I normally listen to but I was intrigued enough to seek out and listen to the original version of Get Lucky. Listen and see what you think…..
After listening to Daft Punk’s version I have to say that Daughter’s version is the ultimate proof that a cover song doesn’t have to be a note for note copy to be great. Amazing job Daughter! We will definitely be talking more about you in future posts on this blog.
As always I am interested in hearing your thoughts……post a comment and let me know which version of Get Lucky you like best.
