U2 Covers

The trailer to “The Impossible” hooked me with Damien Rice’s cover to the U2 song “One,” which belongs to a tribute album, “(Ǎhk-to͝ong Bāy-Bi) Covered.” While nothing compares to the original, I was pleased with these U2 covers.

Damien Rice – “One”

Patti Smith – “Until the End of the World”

The Killers – “Ultraviolet (Light My Way)”

Cassandra Wilson, the greatest jazz singer since Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, and Billie Holiday, has a beautiful rendition of U2’s song “Love Is Blindness” from her album, “New Moon Daughter.”
