100 Cover Versions #61: Ellie Goulding & Erik Hassle cover 'Be Mine!' by Robyn

One of the aspects that I never really liked about TV shows such as X Factor is when the contestants have to sing songs that you just know they are not familiar with or have no interest in. Those songs are often ones that were released long before even some of their parents were born. A cover of any song is always good when the singer has a connection or genuine love of the song or music artist. Here is an example of two contemporary singers singing a song that you just know they like. It is Erik Hassle and Ellie Goulding covering Be Mine! by Robyn. 

Be Mine! was one of the many gorgeous songs that featured on her Robyn album in 2008. It got to number 3 in Sweden, number 10 in the UK and number 35 here in Ireland. This cover was found on IndieBritain's page on Youtube.
