The songs you love with a laid-back twist

Few things are better than a well executed cover song. The band Weezer is certainly discovering that, with the success of their Teal Album, released this year and containing hits like “Africa” and “Everybody Wants to Rule the World.” A gutsy move, but somehow, it works!

While songwriters will always have ownership of the songs they penned, sometimes a cover artist comes along who brings it to life in a new and delightful way. This is certainly true for the songs on this playlist, all of which are relaxing remakes of popular songs, from “Lovesong” to “Lilac Wine,” to “Bridge Over Troubled Water.” Enjoy!
