One Direction gets a bad rap in my opinion. Sure, they're a glorified boy band put together by a television show to make executives millions of dollars, but they also bring joy and happiness to young (and old) females around the globe, and isn't that what music is about?
Don't worry, I'm not posting a One Direction track here, but a cover of one, which still might infuriate some. Either way, electro pop princess Katy B has done a bang up job with her take on "Story Of My Life." While the One Direction original is a hybrid of folk, pop, and rock, Katy strips things down to the bare bones: just her and a piano. This minimalist approach works wonders, as Katy's voice takes center stage over the beautiful piano line, infusing the song with soaring emotion and a touch of femininity.
