Sam SmithMoments after Sam Smith was named winner of BBC’s Sound of 2014 poll (who didn’t see that one coming?), BBC Radio 1 dropped this outrageously beautiful cover he did in the Live Lounge of RY X’s track “Berlin.” Whereas RY X’s original has that somber vibe to it, Sam Smith takes it in a completely different direction, giving it this upbeat feel with pounding drums and, of course, his swooning falsetto. I’m not gonna go ahead and say the cover upstages the original, but hell, I’ll certainly be listening the cover more often. Cheers to a great year for Sam Smith, and by consequence all of us music lovers. Enjoy.
