Gloomy Sing-off #2

And we're back with a second helping of Gloomy Sing-off. Gloomy Sing-off takes different versions of the most demoralizing songs ever written and forces them to fight to the death!

The Champ: Bon Iver's "The Wolves" (original)

The Contender: Ellie Goulding's cover

Well, did the queen of dub pull it off?

I have to give it up to the champ. Music for me speaks volumes, and the guitar is much more noticable in Bon Iver's version. It really helps set the tone. I felt my morale plummet just from the soft strumming at the start of it. He hadn't even started to sing yet.

I will submit that I may be biased. When Ellie Goulding opened her mouth at the start of her song, I immediately thought to myself "She sounds like someone who would sing bluegrass". Then I pictured a banjo. Then I chuckled. I live in Va. What can I say?

Also, thanks for using twitter B. It makes it much easier to keep up with your blog.
