Marié Digby – Umbrella

Marié Digby

She’ll be making big news by tomorrow. This song was just added to iTunes today. It’s a pretty good cover. A non-produced version is on youtube. Check it out. This version aired on MTV at the end of the season premiere of “The Hills” (3rd season). Don’t start. It’s not my fault I started watching it. Someone twisted my arm.

Marié has been recently in the studio (re?)recording 3 songs. You can find them on her myspace page (linked below). I love Rihanna’s version of this too, but I like acoustic takes on popular songs even more. Enjoy.

    When I heard the song start playing at the end of that episode, I definitely did a double take. Love the song, and it’s interesting to hear such a non-robotic version of the song, especially the “ella-ella-ella, ay-ay-ay”.

    The song is much more emotional in acoustic.

    yes, i definetly agree.

    This version of the hit song “umbrella” is way better sounding and the lyrics see mto hit me harder with this song than with the up-beat hip-hop version of it :D

    YOU WERE SUCH A WILLING VICTIM. Puh-leeze. You love the Hills. You’re so on Team Lauren.

    I like both versions but would have to give a slight edge to the cover; the lyrics have more resonance in the cover.

    As for the Hills…….there’s no shame in a lil “cheese” TV, and the show does feature some interesting music selections. Besides those girls are hot…..self-indulgent, spoiled, and divorced from reality……but hot nonetheless.

    It’s funny, I just saw Mandy Moore doing a cover of this song also & really liked it. I have to admit, I like all 3 versions I’ve heard so far of this song :o) Thanks so much for sharing!

    Ok, I am probably one of only a few people who is not a fan of this. She sounds okay on some of her other covers but I’m just not impressed thus far. Also, hasn’t anyone noticed that she messes up the lyrics? “Baby cause in the dark / you will see shiny cars” should be “you CAN’T see shiny cars.” Duh, because you can’t see anything when it’s dark. Those are what the actual lyrics are, and to me, it’s a somewhat critical part of that line and misconstrues the meaning. So get it together, Marie Digby.

    This isn’t a bad version at all! In fact, I like it more than the original. Has anyone heard Mandy Moore’s version? That’s not too bad either!
