Ellie Goulding High For This – The Weeknd cover version

I love Ellie Goulding. Her tone and style bring to mind what would happen if Imogen Heap and Bjork morphed in to one person. Lately though, I think I almost appreciate her cover versions more than her original work. This girl is a work horse, covering everyone from Bon Iver to Elton John and many more in between.

This glitchy, laid back cover of ‘High For This’ originally performed by The Weeknd on House of Balloons is a #coverversion Friday treat to listen to.

Ellie Goulding High For This. The Weeknd Cover Version

I originally found this over on The Hype Machine, but it’s been a while since I listened to it. Hearing it again last night made it sound fresh all over.


In addition to being a fun cover version, Monsieur Adi (he of the killer Lana Del Rey Summertime Sadness Remix)delivers a smooth, string loaded Ellie Goulding High For This Remix.

Summertime Sadness (Monsieur Adi Remix) – Lana Del Rey – Tune Of The Week

Ever since Kat tuned me in to Lana Del Rey I’ve been digging her James Dean era faux deepness. Now Monsieur Adi delivers a funked up (or should that be dubbed down?) remix of Summertime Sadness. The remix takes the seriousness and melancholy that make a Lana Del Rey track, well a Lana Del Rey track and it turns the tune all fun and angsty. This tune of the week definitely sounds like a record Justice would put out. And that is a very good thing indeed.
