Violet Orlandi - As The World Falls Down (David Bowie Cover Review)
YouTube cover artist Violet Orlandi surprised me this week with a cover of "As The World Falls Down", the Bowie classic hit from the movie Labyrinth. I listened to the soundtrack for that movie so many times that I wore out the CD. So, I definitely was excited to hear this cover. It did not disappoint! It's amazing! This song was translated into acoustic guitar and vocals absolutely beautifully. She absolutely nailed the vocals. They're delivered in a soft but strong slightly breathy way that perfectly mimics the way Bowie did it. She's also able to put so much tenderness and emotion into her voice. I love this so much. It's so well done. If you're a fan of the original, I definitely recommend checking this one out. ~Gangis
