Song Of The Week #54

Anyone who’s a close friend of mine knows I am a complete sucker for cover songs. This next one was practically my most-played track a year back.

Wicked Games – Coeur de Pirate

Cœur De Pirate

Never in the history of music has the word ‘f*ck’ sounded so beautiful as when sung by Béatrice Martin, better known under her stage name Coeur de Pirate (“Pirate Heart”).

Béatrice’s story is interesting in that she was meant to follow her mother’s footsteps in becoming a classical pianist, got sick of that and decided what the hell, it’s time to live on the streets. After some time doing that though, she realised she did want to pursue a career in music and became Coeur de Pirate. In 2009, her self-titled debut album boosted in popularity when a YouTube video using one of her songs turned viral, leading to some media coverage on Good Morning America and a positive review by Perez Hilton.

I guess the moral of the story here is that when in doubt, there are two things you need to do: 1) Drop everything and live on the streets and 2) Become famous.

That aside though, this cover of The Weeknd is brilliantly haunting and beautiful – one of my favourites.

Enjoy!
