Antony's (from Antony and the Johnsons) cover of "Candy Says" by The Velvet Underground. Such a poignant, gorgeous song, performed with a voice of an angel! Brings me to tears every.single.time. and not ashamed to admit it!
I wanted to dismiss it since Tracy's version is brilliant. This arrangement and vocal replaces the bitterness with hopefulness which fits beautifully with the cover and interpretation. It's a different song telling a new tale in this approach.
Tracy's version is more honest, but rare when a cover tells a new story.
