I was youtubing recently after some music and found out that Kings Of Leon – a band that I know nothing about except that they made some hits, which I wouldn’t recongnize for sure- made a cover from “dancing on my own” from Robyn.
Here you get the original version, live though:
And here you have the cover (live as well):
My conclusions (but feel free to think what you want! Oh thank you!): I like the original version much more for the emotions that go through Robyns voice. She sounds fragile and Kings of Leon sounds like he is singing with a potatoe in the mouth. To compare the musical arrangements is kind of difficult, since they are very different, but I like the effects the guitars produce.
And the winner is -according to my taste- Robyn!
