Covering Your Wednesday: Taking Back Sunday


I found this cover earlier this week and became obsessed with it. The unconventional way that Adam Lazzara and John Nolan of Taking Back Sunday take Kanye's "Can't Tell Me Nothing" is extremely unexpected, and therefore addictive. The song is part of a BillBoard.com special they feature each Monday known as "Mashup Mondays." Obviously the mashup part isn't what us hip-hop junkies are thinking of, but rather exactly what this cover is: unexpected and random. I like that the duo maintains a little piece of the original hip-hop feel with its acoustic takeover; with a refreshing mix like the preceding, this cover delivers a fun style and amazing vocals. The mp3 below is without all the noises and the interview from the above video. Enjoy
