Today we’re putting together a list of tracks we here at Speaker TV couldn’t get enough of on those early Friday mornings.
Some old, some new, some perhaps never heard of – take a look at our staff selections and why we couldn’t get enough of these awesome Like A Versions!
If you’re feeling lucky, we also have copies of Triple J Like A Version Volume 10 to give away! Head on over and enter now!
Chet Faker – (Lover) You Don’t Treat Me No Good – Sonia Dada
“I think he really nailed it – he made it his own, but still managed to keep the elements that make it such a great track!” – SG
Emperors – Shake It Out – Florence And The Machine
“What a massive task taking on Florence solo – but this is up there with the best solo acoustic performances in LAV history!” – SP
Missy Higgins – Hearts A Mess – Gotye
“‘Heart’s A Mess’ is such a powerful and pleading Gotye track, but by slowing it down and stripping it back, Missy evokes more anguish and longing in the lyrics. She’s teased out more emotion. There is also less whimsy in her version, I find, and therefore the meaning is more pronounced, underscored only by a soft, haunting piano accompaniment that lingers after every listen…” – HF
Rufus – My Number/Charlotte – Foals/Booka Shade
“You can’t be a good electronic reinvention, and this one nails both tracks whilst still maintaining that renowned Rufus house vibe – one of the best!” – SP
Illy – Aus Classic Medley – Various Artists
“You can’t beat a good medley – and the live instrumentation makes it that much better!” – IG
