The Mosaic’s Cover of the Week


Every week on The Mosaic we end with an original song and its cover. Vote for your favorite at wobcmosaic@gmail.com!

Last Week’s Results:

So the cover from last week was “Midnight City.” Contrary to what was announced on the radio last Monday, this week resulted in a tie between M83 and Trails and Ways. The two versions are completely different. M83 goes the electronic and distorted route while Trails and Ways relies mainly on their own manpower. The new version substitutes the distortion for a cleaner, more natural and lighthearted sound.

This Week!

This week the battle is between an oldie and someone quite a bit newer. It remains to be seen whether Ingrid Michaelson can beat the great Elvis with her new version of “Can’t Help Falling In Love”. Since his ascension to pop royalty, it’s been hard to find anyone not familiar with the King of Rock and Roll. His song “Can’t Help Falling In Love” has been covered over and over in the forty years since its release. Ingrid Michaelson created a slow, unfettered version of the original during a live recording at Daytrotter Studio.
