In today’s “The cover is better that the original”, we chose Hozier’s Do I Wanna Know. The original song is by Arctic Monkeys.
Why it’s better: Even if the original song by Arctic Monkeys is an outstanding tune. Hozier’s rendition is his own. It sounds like a completely new song. It might not be better but it’s quite different and unexpected. Thanks in part to his natural voice, his interpretation is unique and melancholic. But his backup singers and the entire band did an amazing job blending their instruments perfectly.
