David Wax Museum Cover Ben E King

We've been pretty gushing in our undying love for David Wax Museum around here, as well as the fact that we both love cover songs. Those two loves seldom, if ever, meet, so we we're thrilled to finally bring you a cover song by David Wax Museum. In order to raise awareness for the Winter Walk 2018, which raises awareness of Boston's homeless population, David Wax and Suz Slezak have recorded a version of Ben E King's beyond legendary "Stand By Me." It's quite possibly the most covered song of all time, but with good reason: I don't think I've ever heard a bad version of it. David Wax Museum do a wonderfully faithful version of the classic, or at least as close as you can get with just an acoustic guitar, fiddle, and two voices. It's a one shot video, filmed outside with the duo in a single take. Obviously, a must watch for any fan of music, really.

Normally we'd post the video for David Wax Museum's cover of "Stand By Me" below, but we'd prefer to make you go to Winter Walk Boston's website for that. Plus, there are a bunch of other videos there with some of our favorites like Kingsley Flood and Bridget Kearney. For more on David Wax Museum, check out their website.
