Best Coast covers “Rhiannon”

9 Aug

It wasn’t until a week after their US Open performance that I discovered Best Coast covered Fleetwood Mac’s “Rhiannon” for the tribute album “Just Tell Me That You Want Me”, which also includes performances by Lykke Li, Washed Out and MGMT. There’s been a lot of internet hate for their cover, but I think it’s beautiful. They turned a classic, a favorite of mine, into a pop-y, beach-y version that is all their own. While I don’t think it’s as good as the original (they never are) I thoroughly enjoy it and think the haters need to find more constructive ways of expressing their discontent than proclaiming Best Coast never should have attempted this. I’m glad they did.

What do you think?
