Swedish House Mafia have had a massive hit with “Don’t You Worry Child”. And it’s a good song, with a good story and lyrics, even with all the electronic elements.
You can always test the strengths and merits of a song by stripping it to the bare minimum. While Olly Murs’ cover isn’t exactly bare minimum, it’s definitely more stripped than the original. And it still works.
Actually, I much prefer Olly’s version over the original, especially as it’s live and he sounds great and pulls it off.
