I’ll Love you Bon Bon!

Partly inspired by a Bon sesh earlier today and partly from the great Grammy-Internet debate of ‘OMG who are these tramps who just won a Grammy, never heard of them’ etc, I decided to remind us all (how kind of me) just how ice-clear Justin’s voice really is.

Covering Bonnie Raitt’s ‘I Can’t Make You Love Me’ with a twist of ‘Nick of Time’ this cover is kinda better than the original, reaching new highs, literally, and slowing it down to really expose the desperate sadness of this track. His voice trails up beautifully on ‘I will give up this fight’ (3:52), almost breaking but instead, silkily carries on. In fact it’s one of my favourite covers.

Totes deserved that Grammy.

Bon Iver by Bon Iver is out now!
