Umami – Sunny – Bobby Hebb cover version #coverversion Friday

This week’s cover is technically more of a remix, but it was so artfully and respectfully handled, that I just has to post it.

Umami is comprised of German Duo of Sam and Robert who put together a cracking rework of Bobby Hebb’s beautful acoustic soul record ‘Sunny’ which ranks very highly on my list of all time feel-good pop songs.

Umami – Sunny

“Sunny” has been covered by everyone from Jamiroqui and Marvin Gaye to Frank Sinatra (even a surprisingly tender version by Leonard Nimoy aka Mr Spock), and I’ve posted some of my favourite versions down below the original.

It’s always great to hear a classic rework make its way to the dancefloor.

Cat Power – New York New York – cool cover version

I love finding interesting cover versions of cool songs, and today’s entry is up there with the coolest of them. ┬áIt’s a cover of Frank Sinatra’s “New York” done by Cat Power, who I have never heard of until now. And I love the blues vibe that they’ve brought to this timeless classic.
