If you gave Watching Movies With The Sound Off a solid listen or follow Mac Miller on Twitter you’d know the Pittsburgh native often deals with depression, addiction and those pesky endless nights. So what better song to cover than Bright Eyes’ 2004 single “Lua” which speaks on all three? Press play.

    I would not really call this a cover. Its more of a karaoke session. It is exactly just like the original just with Macs voice instead of Obersts’s vocals. Not that creative.

      “Exactly like the original just with Macs voice” = a cover

        Ummm no. Generally as a musician what you want to do when you do a cover is take that song and put your own twist to it. Go to a Roots show, and you will see how to do a cover song.

    Guess who should never cover a Bright Eyes song?
