Acoustic tracks are, in a word, beautiful. There’s something so intriguing in seeing how an artist strips down a song and presents it to us in a brand new way. Alternative tracks that have gone acoustic are some of our favorites because most of the time, it’s so different from the original. LILHUDDY’s ‘The Eulogy of You and Me’ acoustic is one of those songs! The original track does alt/pop-punk so well. With ‘The Eulogy of You and Me’ acoustic, you can really hear how strong LILHUDDY’s vocals are. Hearing the song as an acoustic track adds a different layer to the song’s meaning and emotions.
Check out LILHUDDY’s performance of this track!
The video was filmed at the Whiskey A-Go-Go in Los Angeles, and the simplicity of it, LILHUDDY performing on stage, is perfect for an acoustic track like this! You can stream ‘The Eulogy of You and Me’ acoustic here.
This track got us thinking. There are many acoustic versions of alt songs out there, so why not take a look at some of our fave ones?
‘Bloody Valentine’ Acoustic – Machine Gun Kelly
Considering LILHUDDY and MGK worked together on Downfalls High, the mini-movie for Tickets To My Downfall, it was only fitting that we include him! We love this version of ‘Bloody Valentine,’ which is definitely very different from the original. But like we said, that’s one of the best things about acoustic tracks.
‘Monsters’ Acoustic – All Time Low
All Time Low’s ‘Monsters’ has been one of Wake Up’s hit singles, Sunshine. So, of course, it makes perfect sense that we’d get an acoustic version of this track! Alex delivers some hard-hitting vocals, as always, which are great for the acoustic track.
‘Stay With Me’ Acoustic – You Me At Six
Yes, we know You Me At Six has a new album out and that this song is older, BUT we absolutely love the acoustic version of this track. It makes this already emotional song even more passionate, and it’s just gorgeous!
