Love Song of the Week

This weeks song is a cover of Whitney Houston’s hit “How will I know”. Sam Smith takes on the song and does something unexpected with it. The original is a dance track but Smith takes it and slows it down into a ballad. If you didn’t know how the original went you’d think that it was his song. Smith gives the song new life, slowed down you can actually focus on the lyrics. It’s a beautiful song! I wonder if it was meant to be a ballad when it was originally written. As I much as I adore Whitney, I got to say that I like Sam Smith’s version better. Maybe it’s because I’m a sucker for a slow, stripped down love song. The video is a live performance of the song for a radio station. I believe this is his first performance of the song. Enjoy!
