Jeff Buckley -“Everybody Hear Wants to Love You (HAERTS Cover)”

Twenty-nine pearls in your kiss
A singing smile
Coffee smell and lilac skin
Your flame in me

No one sings like Jeff Buckley, nor can anyone reach his emotional depths. But lead singer of HAERTS, Nini Fabi, seems to understand the stakes of covering a Jeff Buckley song. Drenched in HAERTS’ classic 80’s orchestration, the cover does a great job at going in a completely different direction, separating the chorus from the minimalistic, dreary verses. The chorus blossoms into a shimmering idea, but never speeds out of control. Compare the versions of each song below:
