Kanye West – Heartless & Cover

Messing around on Youtube I ran across Kanye West’s song Heartless, which, surprisingly, even though it isn’t generally the type of music I like, I thought was a pretty good song. Other than a few (obviously intentional) grammar/pronunciation mistakes, the lyrics are also interesting and well written, which seems a pretty rare thing for a lot of pop/R&B/HipHop/etc. music anymore.

I dug through a bunch of covers of it too, because I thought the song seemed like it would work well as a guitar song, unfortunately most of them weren’t very good, but I did find one acoustic cover, apparently by (a member of?) a band called Stealing Jane that was pretty good, so here’s the original:
