It’s been a very long time since we last did a cover of the week and to be honest we haven’t really kept it going for just the fact that we have forgotten to. So, we return this week with a cover that I have always enjoyed and I picked this one due to a Dodge commercial that I have been seeing a lot lately. If you haven’t noticed, Dodge has been running a commercial for it’s sports cars that contains the Phil Collins classic In The Air Tonight and I couldn’t help, but think of the Nonpoint version that was included in the film Miami Vice. The song was also included on the band’s third album Recoil and it’s honestly one of my favorite covers. Nonpoint’s version stays true to the original as far as the tempo is concerned, but the band adds some Latin elements to the track which make it unique and at times they make the song a little heavier as well which updates it. I am also a huge fan of Elias Soriano’s vocals on the track which may not be like Collins, but it works tremendously for their version. I suggest you check out the track below because this is a lesson on what it means to cover a song.
