Cake By The Ocean (DNCE Cover) - The Feelgood Orchestra

 

The Feelgood Orchestras version of DNCE's famous Cake By the Ocean is great, I would say better than the originial even!

The Book of Love cover by Peter Gabriel is pretty fantastic - Heard at the end of Scrubs. I actually prefer The Magnetic Fields orginal, but both are great.

I will always love Vampire Weekend's cover of Rancid's "Ruby Soho"

The original is a harsher sound, but still great!  I also made a playlist of all my favorite covers
