In honor of Alabama Shakes’ victory in Squawkin’ Good Showdown 2016, I’ve put together a Spotify playlist of their best songs, as well as a few of the best covers and remixes of their songs I found on Soundcloud:
Harold Green feat. Willow Wells – “Gimme All Your Love”
“Gimme All Your Love” seems to be the favorite Alabama Shakes song to cover by various artists on Soundcloud, but this version stands above the rest. It even includes a spoken word verse, giving this song a unique twist. This is from his compilation Flowers For the Living 2016 which also features a bunch of other great covers.
Riders Against the Storm – “RE:AL” (Alabama Shakes Remix)
Hip hop group Riders Against the Storm uses part of the instrumental from “Don’t Wanna Fight” for this great track. Taken from their remix album RE:Mixtape which you can listen to here.
Morgan Bain – “Don’t Wanna Fight” (Live on 92.9 FM Perth)
Finally, here’s Australian soul singer Morgan Bain with a live version of “Don’t Wanna Fight”, the clear favorite song of most people who voted for Alabama Shakes in Squawkin’ Good Showdown this year.
