Covers by our elders

First we had Johnny Cash with “Hurt“, then Paul Anka and his “Rock Swings” album – today I came across this cover of “Fix You” (via Creative Generalist), as performed by Fred Mittle and the Young@Heart chorus:

Love it! I think covers where there’s a significant generation gap between the two artists are really interesting. The song really has two different meanings when Fred sings it versus Coldplay’s original.

If you enjoy it too you can actually buy the MP3 for $3 here.
