Robyn Covers Coldplay 'Every Teardrop is a Waterfall': LISTEN



Arjan Writes points us to this cover of Coldplay's "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall" dropped by Swedish songstress Robyn at BBC Radio One's Live Lounge.

Writes Arjan: "It is a beautifully performed and arranged reinterpretation of Coldplay's anthemic orginal that comes at a perfect time. With all the bleak news headlines of the last few days, Robyn provides comfort, hope and light with this wonderful cover."

  1. I think Pitchfork put it best:

    'The lyric "I'd rather be a comma/ Than a full stop" sounds less dopey when Robyn sings it.'

  2. I love anything this chick touches. She's vastly talented and underrated in the States.

  3. She's incredible live as well!

  4. Meh. I know I'm in the minority but I tend to think Robyn is never really as good as I want her to be. Her voice is nasal, she meanders around a melody and never really conjures much emotion with her singing. (The only exception for me might be her single "With Every Heartbeat" but I attribute at least half of that song's success to Kleerup's excellent producing work.) As a person, I think she's awesome, just not that into her as a singer. Certainly not the same caliber as, say, Roisin Murphy.

  5. @Nuflux I'm with you. I don't really get it.

    In fact, that point at 2:46 is fairly painful. I agree that she's great as a person. But, this is... kinda boring.

  6. the song itself is a stinker, but this arrangement is at least listenable.
