Earlier today we told you about Kings of Leon performing an excellent cover of Robyn’s Dancing On My Own (check it out here) and it got us thinking about the Swedish pop goddess. That got us thinking about covers Robyn has done. So we started to think about which covers are her best. And here we are.
5. Alicia Keys, Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart
We’re not sure if Robyn’s electronic backdrop was the best choice for Key’s track, but we love the emotion in the performance.
4. Coldplay, Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall
Robyn paid homage to hometown heroes in her cover selection for the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge. A difficult song to sing, Robyn had a few shaky notes, but still delivers an incredible performance and fun re-imagination of the track. Plus, I could finally understand the lyrics.
3. Kelly Clarkson, Since U Been Gone
We love Robyn’s remix of the powerhouse pop track, from the synths to the understated chorus.
2. Prince, When Doves Cry
It takes a pretty confident singer to take on Prince and we applaud Robyn for getting in the ring with the Artist, delivering a funky and fierce version of the classic track.
1. Robyn, Be Mine
Robyn’s best cover ever is one of her own songs. In 2008, she slowed down her track Be Mine at the Nobel Peace Prize gala and gave a stirring and emotional performance that is sob-worthy.
