The Killers’ Smile Like You Mean It:
David Gray takes a crack:
I like David Gray. I like the song. I do not like David Gray doing this song. I’m not entirely sure why. Maybe too much similarity between David Gray and Brandon Flowers (Killers’ lead vocalist) styles? Perhaps David Gray is only meant to sing David Gray songs.
And Tally Hall covers:
Something about this cover falls just short of getting there. I want to hear it in a cathedral (or, at a minimum, turn up the reverb). But still, I quite like it.
