Bawley (Hearts) 2014: Top 5 Covers of 2014

5. Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox - No Diggity (Blackstreet)

Scott Bradlee spent 2014 creating viral videos. With Postmodern Jukebox he creates jazz club versions of pop songs. Some are good, many terrible. No Diggity is always good (here). See them all

4. Flaming lips feat Miley Cyrus & Moby - Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds (The Beatles)

This is the highlight from Flaming Lips guest filled version of Sgt Peppers (here).

3. Dinosaur Jr - Fade Into You (Mazzy Star)

The Mazzy Star original is just about the cruisiest song ever. The Dinosaur Jr version is faithful to the original and I love it (here). 

2. The Smith Street Band - History Eraser (Courtney Barnett)

The Smith Street Band are great and Courtney Barnett songs are brilliant. This cover done for triple j like version (here).

1. Courtney Barnett - Cannonball (The Breeders)

Today's 'slacker hero' takes on a 90's classic. Pretty much perfect.

Check, check, one two, one two
