My Top 12 Boyce Avenue Song Covers

      Boyce Avenue, an American rock acoustic band composed of brothers Alejandro (Vocals, Guitar, Piano), Fabian (Guitar, Backing Vocals) and Daniel (Bass, Percussion, Backing Vocals) was formed year 2004. The band name was derived from two streets where the brothers lived when they were young. It was in 2006 when they began on posting videos on the Internet. Now, they are one of the most searched bands in Youtube for their great song covers which have millions of views. They are known for making covers of popular songs, some of these were songs which their fans have chosen for them to sing.

Below is my top 12 favorite Boyce Avenue Cover Songs. Hope you’ll like it!

12 - Shadow Of The Day

           Shadow of the day originally sung by Linkin Park is one of my favorite Boyce Avenue cover song because of it great melody and its mellow attack to the song which makes it more appealing to my ears. 

11 - No Air

              My top 11 song is No Air, a duet by Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown. I was amazed when I first heard this song because didn’t know that this song could also sound good with it having only a male voice.

10 - Teenage Dream

              I really enjoy hearing cover songs that are originally sung by artists from the opposite sex. On my 10th most favorite Boyce Avenue song is their version of Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream. 

9 - Before Its Too Late


               Another song which became one of my favorite is their version of Before its too late by rock band The Goo Goo Dolls.

8 - Will You Be There

               My 8th most loved Boyce Avenue Cover is their version of the late Michael Jackson’s “Will You Be There?”. I really admire them for singing this song for the benefit of the victims of the 2010 earthquake on Haiti which killed a lot of people.

7 - Rolling In The Deep

              Their version of Rolling In The Deep by very famous British singer Adelle is 5th on my most favorite Boyce Avenue covers. I really enjoyed playing this song over and over again when it was first released.

6 - Angel

                  This song is always at my playlist before I sleep at night. I am really love the lyrics and the melody of this Sarah Mclachlan’s song. It became more beautiful when it was delivered by a voice as good as Alejandro’s. 

5 - It Will Rain

                  No. 5 in my top 12 list is Bruno Mars’ It Will Rain. Their acoustic approach in this song brought this song to its best. Bruno Mars’ version was very beautiful but I really like Boyce Avenue’s version much better.

4 - Grenade

                  Another cover that I love is Bruno Mars’ original song entitled Grenade. This version gave me an idea on how to sing this song. I really like singing these songs but the problem is that Mars’ voice range is so high and I can’t reach it. I like this version because it can be sung by people who are like me. :))  

3 - Set Fire To The Rain

                  This is my first time hearing their version of this Adelle song and I was immediately captured by it. I placed this as no. 3 in my list because the way they sung Set Fire To The Rain is very good and I am having an LSS because of it.

2 - Keep Holding On

                  Keep Holding On originally sung by Avril Lavigne is no. 2 at my list because I just love this song. They always give me an idea on how I can sing this great songs. I sung this song in our acquaintance party when I was in 4th year college in our University. 

1 - Perfect

                  Number 1 on my top 12 most favorite Boyce Avenue cover songs is their version of Perfect by Pink. I have already feaured this song on my previous blog about song covers. It is my most loved Boyce Avenue cover because the lyrics of this songs describes me when I was having so many doubts about my worth. This song really inspires me and I hope that you are inspired by it too. :))

Pray - Cover by Drew Dawson Davis

         Another cover that I find good is Drew Dawson Davis’ version of “Pray” by Justin Bieber. I was so glad when I found this video because I really like this song’s meaning and of course its melody. Since I am not a great “Bieber fanatic”, I ignored this song when it first went out. It was when I found this video that I realized that this song is very moving. Just like with Boyce Avenue’s version of "Perfect", I was really inspired when I read the lyrics of this song because it tells us that we should help making a difference to help changing the world for the better. That there is a rainbow after every rain. That we should not lose hope and know that we can be strong if we just PRAY. :))

Pray Lyrics:

I just can’t sleep tonight
Knowing that things ain’t right
It’s in the papers, it’s on the TV, it’s everywhere that I go
Children are crying, soldiers are dying, some people don’t have a home

But I know there’s sunshine behind that rain
I know there’s good times behind that pain
Hey, can you tell me how I can make a change?

I close my eyes and I can see a brighter day
I close my eyes and pray
I close my eyes and I can see a better day
I close my eyes and pray

I lose my appetite knowing kids starve tonight
Am I a sinner, ‘cause my dinner is still on my plate?
Ooh I got a vision to make a difference
And it’s starting today

‘Cause I know there’s sunshine behind that rain
I know there’s good times behind that pain
Can you tell me how I can make a change?

I close my eyes and I can see a brighter day
I close my eyes and pray
I close my eyes and I can see a better day

I close my eyes and pray for the brokenhearted
I pray for the life not started
I pray for all the ones not breathing
I pray for all the souls in need
I pray, can you give ‘em one today?

I just can’t sleep tonight
Can someone tell me how to make a change?

I close my eyes and I can see a brighter day
I close my eyes and pray
I close my eyes and I can see a better day
I close my eyes and I pray, I pray, I pray
I close my eyes and pray, pray

Perfect - Cover by Boyce Avenue

         One of my favorite cover song is Boyce Avenue’s “Perfect” which is originally sung by American singer-songwriter Pink. This song is all about accepting ourselves on who we really are. It tells us that it is okay to make mistakes, whats important is we learn from those mistakes and continue growing as a person. We should stop being hard on ourselves like we are not good enough because somewhere out there, there are people who views us perfectly just the way we are.

         This version is quite different from Pink’s original one because some of the lyrics in hers were not included. It is good to hear different versions of a song and for me this is the best. Alejandro Manzano’s(lead vocalist) voice was so good that you’ll feel like he is singing the song for you. He delivered the right emotion that the song needed. Overall, to me, it was Perfect!., :))

Perfect lyrics:

Made a wrong turn
Once or twice
Dug my way out
Blood and fire
Bad decisions
That’s alright
Welcome to my silly life
Mistreated, misplaced, misunderstood
Mister knowing it’s all good
It didn’t slow me down
Mistaken
Always second guessing, Underestimated
Look, I’m still around

Pretty pretty please
Don’t you ever ever feel
Like you’re less than
Less than perfect
Pretty pretty please
If you ever ever feel
Like you’re nothing
You are perfect to me!

You’re so mean
When you talk about yourself
You were wrong
Change the voices
In your head
Make them like you instead
So complicated
Look how we all make it!
Filled with so much hatred…

Such a tired game
It’s enough!
I’ve done all I can think of
Chased down all my demons
I’ve seen you do the same

Oh, pretty pretty please
Don’t you ever ever feel
Like you’re less than
Less than perfect
Pretty pretty please
If you ever ever feel
Like you’re nothing
You are perfect to me!

You’re perfect,You’re perfect, yeah

You’re perfect, You’re perfect to me

Oh you’re perfect!
Ooh, pretty pretty please, yeah

You’re perfect,You’re perfect
Pretty pretty please
Don’t you ever ever feel
Like you’re less then
Less than perfect
Pretty pretty please
If you ever ever feel
Like you’re nothing
You are perfect, to me

Why I am Passionate about Music?

casette tapes

        Music is one of the best companion one can ever have. Others may leave you but music wont. There are times when other people wont understand you but just listen to those good songs and it will take away all the hurts that you feel.

        I realized that I love music since I was a little boy. I always sing and I always tap my foot every time a rhythmic sound pass through my ears. Music was always there for me as I was growing up. I always listen to songs especially when I feel lonely and alone. I also have the passion with singing because with it, I can express those things that I want to say without saying the actual words. When I listen to music or sing those songs I feel like the song was meant to make me feel happy about myself, like it was written or sung for me. I am passionate about music because music understands me perfectly. :))
