The Art of the Cover #1: This Land is Your Land

I love a good cover song. I have written this blog with different songs and their covers at least twenty times, but never posted. I decided today was the day to begin the series.

Some covers leave me wondering why. This is not karaoke, people.

A cover is not about imitation. It's about honoring the original work and artist with a personally rendered re-creation.

Sharon and the Dap-Kings take a song I loved to sing as loud as possible  in elementary school choir, and make me not only want to sing it, but dance and lift my hands and smile and get kinda proud.

Here is the cover and the original for your enjoyment.
