Electronic Noise

99 Problems By Hugo

I heard this for the first time the other day watching the film No Strings Attached. I found myself listening to this song in the background instead of the dialogue. One of my favorite things to do with songs I love is go on youtube and find other famous bands/singers that have done covers of it and compare it to the original. I love to see how each artist tries to make it their own. I think that 99 Problems by Hugo is a great example of this. Now don't get me wrong I love the original by Jay-Z just as much, but I love this one too! 
           Another example of a great cover is Rave On by M Ward, originally by Buddy Holly. Or The Rolling Stone's version of Ain't Too Proud to Beg by The Temptations. Check out those videos by clicking on the song titles above!
