There are a lot of people enjoy our previous playlist: Best Khmer Songs For Celebrating Khmer New Year 2017
In this post, we like to create an exceptional playlist to combine pop songs that have great live performance.
For these songs, I personally enjoyed live version than its official version. It’s live. It’s more original than the official version.
1. Gotye – Somebody That I Used To Know
“Somebody That I Used To Know” is a great song that I personally like a lot. When the first time I heard it, I thought it was Sting who sang it. But it was not the case.
Gotye is a Belgian-Australian singer and songwriter. In this live version, he sings with Kimbra, a New Zealand singer and actress.
2. LP – Lost On You
I found this song by chance because of YouTube proposed it. It’s a very good song. This live version is much better than its official version.
Laura Pergolizzi is an American pop singer and songwriter. “Lost On You” is her most successful song so far.
3. John Legend – All of me
This is the great romantic love song. John sang it live at Oprah show in front of his fiancé. It is an exceptional moment. Enjoy it!
4. Hooverphonic – Mad about you
Hooverphonic is a band from Belgium. I’ve never heard of them before but this song stuck in my head.
5. Nelly Furtado – Say it right
I might already hear this song everywhere but this live version is better than its original.
6. Koop – Koop Island Blues
Koop is a band from Sweden. This song is very popular and was featured in many games and TV shows. It is a very nice song to listen along with a drink in your hand or hold someone you love.
7. Amy Winehouse – Back to black
I am sure you know Amy. She’s a talented artist. Even now she passed away but her songs are still with us. This is one of her great live performance.
8. Simon & Garfunkel – The sound of silence
If you’re a new generation, maybe you never hear this song but this is one my favorite songs. The song was composed by Paul Simon between 1963 and 1964. It is a good old song.
9. Michael Jackson – Billie Jean
No one will forget this song, especially his dance. Ths song was released in 1983 and it became one of his greatest songs of all time.
10. Bill Withers – Ain’t no sunshine
I heard this song for the very first time when I took a flight to Siem Reap. I heard it on the plan. This song was released in 1971.
