16 Favorite Songs of 2016: #11 “Take My Breath Away” – Klimt 1918

It feels a bit weird having a cover song on this list, but I couldn’t not include one of my favorite cover songs in recent memory. Plus, I’m a sucker for a thick, hazy, beautiful, atmospheric track and this one definitely fits that criteria.

You know the original version, released by Berlin on the Top Gun soundtrack in 1986…big hit and whatnot. Well Berlin, Klimt 1918 done taken you big hit and made it sound much BIGGER.

Klimt 1918 are not the first band to make a fantastic cover of this song, Copeland might still have my favorite version, but it’s very close. The fact that I enjoy multiple covers of “Take My Breath Away” so much just goes to show that it’s just a flat-out excellent pop tune to begin with, and I bet almost anyone would enjoy at least one of the three versions mentioned in this post.
