Creep and Tainted Love, covered by Karen Souza

And then from the Don’t Speak song I posted earlier, I moved on to discover Karen Souza in youtube, and her version of Creep. It’s surprising how something with a jazzy jaunty semi-happy sound could make that song sound even more sorrowful, filled with mad longing, slashing me to ribbons. In that sense, her ‘Creep’ is similar to the cover of ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’, as done by Israel Kamakawiwoʻole.

Who is this woman? She’s amazing, how she’s all low-key and nonchalant, but so much depth in her voice and delivery. I’m so happy to have found her.
