I’ve gotta say: this is, by far, one of my favorite cover songs to date!
Will Anderson covered Jason Derulo’s “The Other Side” and it turned out amazing. I have pretty legit reasons, too.
First, Jason Derulo’s “The Other Side” is already a great song. It’s catchy and fun to sing. So the song selection was great. (Also, it may be good to consider that Parachute’s latest record ‘Overnight’ has their own song titled “The Other Side”)
Second, Will has a beautiful voice and he definitely shows it off in this acoustic cover.
Third, Will is just simply… adorable.
And finally, the cover sounds wonderful with the piano.
I can listen to this all day!
Parachute is definitely on my top pop rock artists and I was excited to purchase the new album: Overnight. To be completely honest, the second album, The Way It Was, is still my favorite! I wasn’t expecting Overnight to sound so “poppy” considering The Way It Was had slower, yet catchy, melody’s.
I kept up with Parachute on Instagram and Twitter throughout the new album promo hype. They did an amazing job getting the excitement and anticipation out for many fans. I particularly liked how they would post a shot of a line of lyrics and compare it to a similar song they had in the past. I looked forward to listening to the new songs because I had a sense of what was similar to songs before.
Since I really liked “She Is Love” and “Kiss Me Slowly,” I also like “The Other Side.” (Like Parachute said I would!) It’s a new favorite, alongside “Can’t Help” and “Disappear.” I will say, though, that I love the album theme. It absolutely blends well with the songs and the album appearance. It’s obviously about Overnight.
I’ll keep replaying the album, though. It’s not that I’m complaining; I’m just trying to grasp the new angle that Parachute was trying to move onto. I suppose when I find something good once, it’s like my expectations are set higher for what may come next. So, maybe I simply set myself up for this one. Sorry Parachute!! Still love you guys! (and Will Anderson.. your vocals, of course!)
