Same Song, Different Sound

Posted on

For many people, California Dreamin’ is an iconic, classic song that you know all or at least some of the lyrics. To some, they hear the original version by The Mamas and The Papas in their head when the song comes to mind, a feel good, laid back sound that evokes a roadtrip on Route 66.

For me, I hear different versions when I think of the song. Queen Latifah’s version feels romantic, almost as if someone should be dancing the rumba to it. The recent cover by Sia is haunting, yet beautiful in its own way.

It depends on the song but sometimes I skew towards the original song, unless there’s a fantastic cover that offers a fresh take on the song that stays with me.

What about you?
