Sweet Ones Covered on Canadian Idol

The promo for next Monday's Canadian Idol performance shows a clip of one of the 200 contestants who made their way to Toronto covering Sweet Ones, by Sarah Slean. The clip showed one of the male competitors playing it on the piano in a way that sounded simular to Sarah's. You can check for TV times here.

If your interested in hearing two great and unique takes on Sarah's Sweet Ones now, the following two really stood out for me:

  1. Dan Hardin plays an accoustic guitar version accompanied by a very smooth voice. Watch it hear and let him know what you think.
  2. The second video comes to us from South of the Canadian boarder where "Case Western Reserve University's all female acapella group, Solstice" perform their arrangement of Sweet Ones. View it here.

Interested in doing your own cover? Sarah's Sheet Music is being compiled for release. If your interested in lyrics, including two of Sarah's new songs of this year; The Lonely Side of the Moon and The Rose are up on the official site.
