I am by no means a vocalist, but I have included these old covers to provide an idea of what the harp in pop songs can be like.

Teen Spirit Tribute.

“Clocks” by Coldplay. This has had nearly 12,000 views.

“Face in the Crowd” by Tom Petty.  Features electric harp backed by acoustic guitar.

Here’s a live recording of “I’m Yours” by Jason Mranz on the harp.

Rough live recording of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game.”

  1. Hi Wen,

    That was an awesome cover of Clocks, Coldplay isn’t usually to my taste and gets skipped after about 30 seconds on the ipod; but I listened to your whole version and it left me wanting more!

    Cheers – Jay

  2. Hey Wen,

    I wondered how Smells Like Teen Spirit would turn out on a Harp, I really couldn’t imagine it before hand but now I have heard it I have to say it is a triumph!

    Love the quotes too 🙂
