Good Cover Version: Hana Vu does Fleetwood Mac

Pulp gave the world the song "Bad Cover Version." But seeing as I'm a sonic optimist, I'm of the belief that there's more likely than not more good cover versions floating around than bad ones. Good Cover Version celebrates the good, and leaves all that bad and ugly stuff alone.

"It is almost forbidden to cover such a monumental track," muses Hana Vu. And yet, this precocious old soul didn't shy away from taking on Fleetwood Mac's "Gypsy."

Vu's vocals are rich and unafraid, demonstrating emotional nuances that belie her teenage years. Hana's take on "Gypsy" is intoxicating, her voice seamless with the bubbly disco dolly bounce behind her. It's a completely fresh take on the 80s classic, and shows us that Hana Vu has no fear.
