Today’s Musings: The Fray Cover “Heartless”

April 22, 2009
I’m not a big fan of The Fray…it’s all a bit overwrought for me. But lead singer Isaac Slade’s sort of whiny, melodramatic vocals work really well for one of Kanye West’s most emotional songs. And considering Kanye can’t really sing “Heartless” without Auto-Tune, The Fray’s version seems pretty damn successful even if they don’t come close to matching Kanye’s swagger. What do you think?

    I can’t wait to hear this playing as the mood-setting track for the next Meredith Grey/Dr. McDreamy whine-fest. It’s going to be a tear-jerker!!!
