It almost feels like you ain’t cool nowadays until you crank out a mind-blowing cover song — just take a look at some of our faves from last year. It appears that some songs are more popular to cover than others too. Case in point, Tears For Fears’ big ’80s hit Everybody Wants To Rule The World.
It’s a fairly simple, yet super catchy song, so in other words: the perfect blank canvas for artists to work off of! Whether it’s a straighforward take on the song or a more modern, unique take, we’ve got ourselves two contenders for the new ruler of this track — Canadian indie band Bear Mountain and New Zealand pop star Lorde!
Check out all three versions below and then tell us what you think!
Here’s the original:
Here’s Bear Mountain’s latest cover of the song:
And here’s Lorde’s rendition of it for last year’s Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack:
Let us know which version reigns supreme: Bear Mountain or Lorde. (OR Tears For Fears’ original version!)Tweet
