Shuffle Aces: Jimmy Barnes & Diesel – Chandelier
Covers are always an interesting thing – and with this version of Chandelier, Barnes and Diesel nail one of the key elements. Good covers work when a band either takes a song in a completely different direction or into a new genre, or the song stays much the same but the artist puts their individual stamp on it. In this case, it’s the second one. Both Jimmy Barnes and Diesel do an amazing job with what is already an amazing song – I’d like to think Sia would like the way they’ve approached Chandelier. This performance was from the 2015 APRA Awards in Australia, and the footage was produced by Moshcam – so it looks as good as it sounds! I was lucky enough to be in attendance for this one and I can assure you Barnes and Diesel had the crowd spellbound.

Shuffle Aces is a series of posts that highlights a song of the week that “shuffling” has brought forth. With all the streaming services it’s not just an iPod on shuffle mode that we use to discover new stuff, but the principle remains the same: hit play and wait to see what gems come forth.
