We just can't get enough of these reinvented classics.
Michael Bublé is the reigning King of Covers, and while he's probably best known for re-inventing Christmas hits, he's also a genius at classic pop standards. He's done everyone from Van Morrison to Brian Wilson, and now that he's released his latest covers collection 'Nobody but Me', we just can't get enough of him.
Michael Bublé's cover songs are some of the best ever
Here are his top six cover songs:
1. 'God Only Knows': Written by the Beach Boys' Brian Wilson and Tony Asher in 1966 for their landmark album 'Pet Sounds', this gem has always been a favourite. Bublé's piano rendition is a little more morose, but it truly showcases the pureness of the crooner's voice. It even beats the 2014 BBC version featuring more than 25 pop artists. 'God Only Knows' is the final track on 'Nobody but Me'.
2. 'My Baby Just Cares For Me': Another 'Nobody but Me' special is this Nina Simone number; of course, it was originally a jazz standard written for the 1930 film 'Whoopee!', but Nina put it in the top 10 with her 1958 version. Bublé's jaunty rendition includes references to Hollywood sweethearts Marlon Brando and George Clooney in place of Liz Taylor and Lana Turner.
3. 'I've Got You Under My Skin': Bublé is constantly getting compared to Frank Sinatra for his singing style, and that's namely because his rendition of 'I've Got You Under My Skin' is absolutely spot on. Originally performed by Virginia Bruce in the musical 'Born to Dance', Sinatra took it to the top in 1966 for his band The Four Seasons. It appeared on Bublé's 2005 album 'It's Time'.
4. 'Crazy Love': Michael Bublé released this Van Morrison classic as a single in 2010 for his number one album of the same name. Unlike some of his more stripped back numbers, this a really updated version of the song, which was written in 1970 for Morrison's album 'Moondance' - the title song of which Bublé has also done an extraordinary cover of.
5. 'Georgia on My Mind': He really stuck to a classic retro sound with his 2012 Record Store Day single featuring Ray Charles, taking from his 'Crazy Love' album. It's not far off Ray Charles' 1960 version of the official Georgia state song either, but they both make clear departures from the Hoagy Carmichael and Stuart Gorrell original.
6. 'You Don't Know Me': Jerry Vale made it famous, but did you know that Michael Bublé's 2005 song from 'It's Time' was actually written by Cindy Walker in 1955? It doesn't matter anyway, because Bublé's cover was again inspired by Ray Charles' 1962 version from his album 'Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music'.
