COVER: “Hey Ya” – Obadiah Parker.

Unless you’re been living under a particularly heavy rock for the past few years, you’ve no doubt heard of the song “Hey Ya” by OutKast. It became one of those songs that everyone was forced to listen to all summer long, no matter what you thought of it, based on the very fact that every store/restaurant/car radio/friend’s house was playing it. I also had to play it in band class, but I digress. But see, there was one amazing thing that came out of the craze: this cover, by Obadiah Parker.

It’s played by just a man and his guitar, and as simple as that is, it elevates the song to something entirely more complex. Instead of just the melody, you can really hear the lyrics in this version, and suddenly that summer anthem means something more. It’s powerful. This is one of my absolute favorite cover songs, and I know that it will soon be yours too.
