Jem – Yellow (Coldplay Cover)

Ok so I heard about the Sweetheart: Our Favorite Artists Sing Their Favorite Love Songs project a while back and wasn’t too worked up about another covers album. Then I heard the Jem’s cover of Yellow and quickly changed my mind. Given how overplayed the original was I didn’t think it was possible to hear the song in a new light but cudos to Jem for making that possible. The album is due on Valentines day and is being exclusively released by Starbucks. Download.
