Instrumentally I like the cover, even though they pretty much stuck to the exact same piano chords.
The vocals, however, left something to be desired. The weird (for lack of a better word) emo intonations of the singer kind of put me off.
I think the emo intonation comes from the singer scooping every single note he hits and turning the end of every melody into a yelp. This is my favorite SoCo song, so I'm glad its getting some love.
