Video Of The Day: "Half As Good As You" by Tom Odell (feat. Alice Merton)

Hey guys!

There are SO many iconic collaborations out there which have happened over time.

Whether that's Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe" (it's iconic, okay?), Grease's "You're The One That I Want" performed by Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta (a CLASSIC) or a more recent example - Eminem and Beyoncé's "Walk On Water" (controversial, but definitely a big one).

There's just something exciting about two artists combining their sounds and creating a united piece of art.
Maybe I'm just overly nerdy when it comes to that, but I really love listening to collaborations.

Lucky me, because I get to share one with you today and I'd love to know what you think!

"Half As Good As You" by Tom Odell featuring Alice Merton

When I heard about their duet, I immediately couldn't wait to hear how their voices would mix together.

Both, Tom Odell and Alice Merton, have very strong and very attention-grabbing voices, which is why I think this song is such a powerful one. It's not your average "voices blend together so smoothly" kind of duet (and hey, there's nothing wrong with those! At all!).

Instead, you have two powerful voices that both demand your attention.
They tell the story of feeling heartbroken over somebody who isn't part of your life anymore, while trying to find somebody just like them.

The way the voices duet with each other and the piano creates an absolutely enchanting and slightly dramatic dynamic.
Although the lyrics are sad, the song is an absolute delight to listen to.
