Vestige of the Vox Populi # 59

Vestige of the Vox Populi # 59

By Sean Stubblefield

Mad World...

A song that has significant meaning for me not only in the lyrics, but because of its association with one of my favorite movies-- Donnie Darko. And I appreciate when performers recreate, interpret or improvise a song-- especially someone else’s song-- with a distinctive flair to make that song their own or give it a new sound. What’s the point of doing a cover song if you’re just going to copy the original? Here are three people who do a decent job of being unique in their rendition.
