Nothing. (PIX)

"What would you do if your son was at home, crying all alone on the bedroom floor 'cause he's hungry? And the only way to feed him is to sleep with a man for a little bit of money; and his daddy's gone, in and out of lock down, I ain't got a job now, he's just smokin' rock now; so for you this is just a good time, but for me this is what I call life." - Bastille What Would You Do (City High Cover)



I've had this song on repeat for over an hour now; I just can't stop listening to it. It's so depressing, but the cover from Bastille is incredibly beautiful. The original... I would've looked over somewhere.

That awkward moment when the cover is better than the original.

Maybe if they had better music production and planned the song out better, it'd be a descent song music wise. Nonetheless, the lyrics are powerful. What I like best about Bastille's cover, other than it being purely amazing, is that it's really a cover, the music and tone is completely different than the original. It's disappointing when you listen to a "cover" of a song, and the beat is just sped up or there's more bass or something.

Anyway, go listen to it. Otherwise, look at these, you're here already anyway:
