After listening to Miley Cyrus' awful cover of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit", I went on and found Yuna's cover of "Come As You Are". First impressions? Christ, it's beautiful!
It's not your regular-Joe cover. It's a re-creation/sample/rebirth/whatever-you-prefer-to-call-it song. Yuna changes this grunge song into a sweet, heart-felt pop song. But a good pop song. And Kurt always wanted to make "simple pop songs", so I feel he'd approve. Take a listen. It's a real feel-good track. Thumbs up from me!
What do you think? It's been getting a good response from Nirvana fans because although it is pop, it isn't bubble-gum, fake/poser pop (you know what and who I'm talking about).
Personally, I think It's beautiful. Yuna's voice is truly captivating, taking you to a different planet. What a glorious cover! If only pop music sounded this good all the time...
