The Fray - Heartless (cover)

Oh, I am a sucker for cover versions, especially good ones - and twitter yesterday got me thinking about my favourites. Some of them have already featured on the site, but this one is the most recently discovered. Originally a Kanye West song, The Fray's version of Heartless is an entirely different kind of experience. This version has the most beautiful melancholy feel to it, with an acoustic backing and plaintive vocals. I'm not a massive rap fan, so this version gives a chance to examine some pretty emotive lyrics - but, to be honest, The Fray could make singing the alphabet sound like an instant classic.
