When it comes to covers, I've heard some shit in my time. Really, when attempting to do a successful cover, you should choose a song that: is relatively well-known, will showcase your voice and will allow you to put your own spin on it without being too 'out there' or just generally ruining the song. Ellie Goulding's cover of 'The Wolves' by Bon Iver ticks all of the boxes. It does want to make me listen to the original, but is quite beautiful nonetheless.
