Say what you will about Glee, those kids can sing and nothing feels better than hearing a song that used to make you cringe be sung in a way that makes you want to cry. Usually I would also put the original, but it’s not even worth it (sorry Ne-Yo).
Let Me Love You (Until You Learn To Love Yourself)
Then we have Running Up That Hill covered by Track & Field:
I hadn’t heard this version before and I think it’s my favorite of all of them. This version is from the Warehouse 13 Soundtrack. Epic! There isn’t an official video, but this one is good and it has the lyrics (sorry if you’re not into lyric videos!)

And for some good ol’ fashion Florence + The Machine:
I finally created a Pandora channel for FTM and when I first heard this song I thought she was saying, “I’m so happy.” You can imagine my chagrin when I tried looking for it and realized it was Heavy.
Heavy In Your Arms
And of Finally Breath of Life, also by Florence + The Machine. The movie was blah, but this song. This song gave me life after watching the comatose looking Kristen Stewart try to act like a brave version of Snow White (lest we all forgot, she ran away from her evil Stepmama in the Disney version and then ate the apple from the stranger…so, not the best role model out there).
This version is so epic and I am partial to orchestras as you all well know, so here we go!
