Riptide

I went in the office to look at Tim's photographs of a golf day, and Vance Joy's "Riptide" started playing on the computer. I was kind of excited and told Tim it was an Australian song. Tim told me they've been playing the song a lot on the alternative radio station he's been listening to.

Maybe the song is becoming popular here.

I Googled the song and saw that Taylor Swift has done a cover of the song.

I think I shall have to listen to that.

It's quite lovely. I think Taylor Swift does a good job with it.

In case there's someone reading this who hasn't heard the original...here's the video.

This is my first time seeing the video. The lip-synching woman is a bit eerie. But cool.

I wasn't in the mood to end this yet, so I went to find another video.

Here's Vance Joy doing a cover of Adele's "Rolling in the Deep".

I'm not sure that I like it; but I might...someday. It could grow on me.

It gets better as it goes on.

I felt like he was just talking in the beginning, but thought it was just my imagination. But then I saw in comments that other people were saying the same thing.
