In today’s “The cover is better that the original”, we chose King of Leon’s Dancing on my own. The original song is by Robyn.
Why it’s better: Robyn’s original song is quite good but is a song that you dance to, that scene in “Girls” with Hannah and Marnie comes to mind. Kings of Leon plays an almost acoustic version and like with all acoustic versions of a song you pay more attention to the lyrics.This interpretation is even melancholic and sad. Caleb’s voice is more heartfelt here than when he sings for the millionth time “Use Somebody”.
