Covered… Herbie Hancock feat John Legend and P!nk “Don’t Give Up” (Peter Gabriel Cover)

You know when you hear someone talk about eating 2 things together that sound horrible but really turn out to taste great?  Well, that’s what I thought when heard that John Legend and P!nk teamed up with Herbie Hancock to cover Peter Gabriel’s “Don’t Give Up”.  It sounded like a bad idea, but it works on every level.  The arrangement is beautiful, P!nk sound soft and strong, John Legend sounds smooth and cool, and the song blends beautifully together.  To me, this is one of those songs that you just don’t touch unless you do it exquisitely because the original is already perfection.
