Welcome to the latest instalment of our most recent blog series Top Tens. Last time, we explored a few of our favourite covers of all time, from well-known and up-and-coming artists, as well as their original counterparts. This time, we’re continuing on that same vein, but going deeper and more specific to a certain artist.
As I’m sure you are all well aware, Cimorelli are one of our favourite groups currently (as evidenced from our many posts about them, which you can view all in one place here!), but even the awesomeness of these six sisters Christina, Katherine, Lisa, Amy, Lauren and Dani; had to start somewhere. And where they started were uploading covers to YouTube. As good as their original songs are (and believe me, there are quite a lot of enjoyable original melodies, ranging from “Made In America”, “Million Bucks”, “Believe It”, “Wings”, and “You’re Worth It”, to “Worth The Fight”, “Good Enough”, “Renegade”, “Headlights”, “Alive”, “One More Night” and “Never Let Me Fall”- as well as several future melodies on the upcoming Sad Girls Club); I still reckon Cimorelli will be known for their covers more so any of the songs they’ve written themselves.
Just sit on that fact and dwell on it, and think about the artists Cimorelli have covered. Taylor Swift’s “Ready For It”, “Shake It Off”, “22” and “We Are Never Getting Back Together”. Kesha’s “Praying”. “Priceless” from for KING & COUNTRY, as well as other covers from Miley Cyrus (“Malibu”, “Wrecking Ball” and “Nobody’s Perfect”- as Hannah Montana), Demi Lovato (“Sorry Not Sorry” and “Really Don’t Care”) Katy Perry (“Roar”), Rachel Platten (“Fight Song”), Justin Bieber (“Cold Water/Let Me Love You”) and OneRepublic (“Counting Stars”) Not to mention Owl City’s “Good Time”, Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger”, Pharrell Williams’ “Happy”, Justin Timberlake’s “Mirrors” and “Can’t Stop the Feeling”, as well as Meghan Trainor’s “Lips are Movin”, Clean Bandit’s “Rather Be” and “Symphony” and Toto’s “Africa”. There is even a parody of “Bad And Bougee” (originally by Migos) that had me in stitches because it was so funny. It seems like Cimorelli can cover any artist if they want to, and we could almost guarantee that it’s be unique, catchy and enjoyable. So what’s next cover-wise on Cimorelli’s radar? That’s the subject of this week’s top ten’s, as we recommend 30 songs that would be perfect for them to cover, either for nostalgia or because it’s current right now, or it’d be perfect for their voices. So without further ado, here’s 30 songs that we think would be perfect for Cimorelli to cover. So, Christina, Katherine, Lisa, Amy, Lauren and Dani, if you’re reading this, what do you reckon?
