How I Spent My Morning

I woke up this morning two hours earlier than planned.  So as I was laying in bed, I was thinking about the song “Pompeii” by Bastille (featured as a #PhillipsSongOfTheDay, read here) and how that’s a totally epic song.  Then I thought, “how would I perform that acoustic?”

I’m performing in my first showcase at my school tomorrow; I’ll be playing three original songs (guitar and vocals), but I did have a moment when I thought I’d start off my set playing a cover song.  It was hard to choose which song to cover, but it was between “Let it Go” from Frozen, “Cooler Than Me” by Mike Posner, and “Team” by Lorde.  I wasn’t even considering “Pompeii” because I had no idea how an acoustic version would go.  Then I found this video:

From this video, I found these clips of Bastille covering “We Can’t Stop” by Miley Cyrus and “No Scrubs” by TLC.  I was stunned how they changed up these songs; they totally owned the songs and I think did a great job:
