Chris Farren - Pirates (Jenny Owen Youngs)

jennyowenyoungs:

arockandrollromance:

Dear friend and punk celebrity/t-shirt mogul/America’s Sweetheart, chrisfarren, has been doing a series of covers. Because I am who I am, I e-bullied Chris into covering a jennyowenyoungs song. Though “Pirates” was my second choice, goddamn. Like all the others in the series (notable favorites Modern Baseball’s “The Weekend” and Cat Stevens’s “Don’t Be Shy”), Chris goes above and beyond the simple acoustic guitar/vocals run-of-the-mill cover. He makes these songs his own. There’s a reason that fakeproblems is my favorite band and these covers just make me even more anxious for a new album of original material. Until then, I’ll be ripping these for my iPod to listen to on repeat.

god bless chris farren

Lana Del Rey - Once Upon a Dream (Maleficent (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack))

stereoh:

If perfection were a song, this would be it.

I know you
I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you
The gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam

Yet I know it’s true that visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you, I know what you’ll do
You’ll love me at once
The way you did once upon a dream

But if I know you, I know what you’ll do
You love me at once
The way you did once upon a dream

I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you
The gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam
And I know it’s true that visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you, I know what you’ll do
You’ll love me at once
The way you did once upon a dream

But if I know you, I know what you do
You love me at once
The way you did once upon a dream

Kickstarter Cover of U2’s “Stay (Faraway, So Close)” for Sergio Villegas.

A beautiful song from an underrated record.
