Song #13 The Magic Numbers – Crazy in Love
Why I Picked It: You read it right. Not Beyonce featuring Jay-Z. The Magic Numbers. This is from KCRW’s Sounds Eclectic The Covers Project. I share this version whenever I can.
Why I Liked It: This is one of my favorite cover songs because it’s in such stark contrast to the beat-laden, hip-hop original. The Magic Numbers playfully sing the iconic “oh oh oh” that open and fill in so much of the music you miss in the original with the use of different acoustic instruments. I really believe this version gives a greater appreciation to the original.
