10 Life-Changing Covers by Harry Styles

As a solo artist, Harry has covered a variety of songs from many different genres. While exploring different styles, he has still found a way to make the songs he covers his own. His performance of Ultralight Beam at the Troubadour serves as a perfect example of that (talented, brilliant, incredible, amazing, show-stopping, spectacular, never the same, totally unique, completely not ever been done before)! It is not a surprise that, as a Harry stan, I love every single one of those covers and they each hold a special place in my heart. So, as if my life is not complicated enough already, I decided to give myself a challenge. Why not pick ten of my favorite covers and rank them? Now you may think, is it really that hard? Well, let me tell you! You know when you go up to your mom and ask her who her favorite child is, and she says, “I love you all equally.”  Well, deep down she knows that even though she loves all of them, there is one that is truly her favorite. All she has to do is think about it really hard and use the process of elimination (which in my case is much harder like come on these are harry styles covers we’re talking about!). Somehow I managed to pick my top ten favorite covers of all time (don't ask me how because trust me, I have no clue) and let me tell you you're in for a surprise. Who knows, maybe at the end of this, you’ll have trouble deciding which cover is your favorite too?

 

Let's start off at the bottom of my list of favorites…
