Cover Songs - Rockin Romance Edition Part 1

Destiny Worldwide released an album of covers of love songs back at the end of April. I listen to 6 of them. I'm going to divide it into three parts with two songs each.

1000 Miles - Moneta. This song is a remake of Vanessa Carlton's hit song. Most people may know it from the 2004 movie White Chicks. The song starts out exactly the same as the original, but then bursts out in guitar along with the original piano. The singer of Moneta works the vocals very well. Before hearing this I don't think I could have imagined a guy singing this song. However, this is a very good cover and is definitely worth listening to.

Kiss From A Rose - The Arrival. This song is a remake of the 1994 Seal hit. I'll admit I've never heard the original before, but I looked it up last evening to prepare for this. The original was much different than I thought. The cover sounds pretty similar except it puts more guitar and more of a techno feel. The Arrival definitely pulls off the vocals really well too. My only issue is the fade out at the end, but I suppose there wasn't really another way to do it. I still suggest listening to it.
