“Some Nights” (fun. cover)

    Ellie Goulding covered fun.’s radio hit “Some Nights” on BBC’s Radio 1 this morning. If the most obvious way to judge a cover is to compare it to the original, then Goulding has knocked the boys of fun. out of the park; something about her quavery voice makes the overearnest, full-chorus bombast of “Some Nights” way more palatable. Plus, Nate Ruess’ Auto-Tuned vocal runs sound better when sung live and computer-free. Listen to Ellie Goulding’s live cover below. [Idolator]
