Vitamin String Quartet are back for our hearts, and we have 101 feelings about almost all the covers in the Our Flashback Wedding album. Oof. Imagine having this much talent.
And the first cover we need to scream about is of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game.” Since Vitamin String Quartet are featured in the official Bridgerton score, here is our official plea to have this cover featured in season two because the song itself screams about Anthony Bridgerton and Kate Sharma. I haven’t taken this one off replay since it first released–it’s sheer magic, and you all know I’m right about this.
Our Flashback Wedding also features a breathtaking cover of Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart” featuring Simply Three and Sixpence None the Richer’s “Kiss Me.” Both stunning in every way they can be, and really though, every show should just use these covers because they’re too good.
The next one I’m ridiculously obsessed with is a-ha’s “Take on Me” because it’s a cover that hits in all the right ways somehow making the song feel even more romantic than it ever has before.
Finally, with a plethora of incredible covers, the album concludes with Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You,” and there could not have been a more perfect song choice as the curtain call. You don’t cover the iconic treasure of a song unless you’re gifted enough to match the level of magic only Houston can, but with the Vitamin String Quartet, it works perfectly. And because the song itself is so transcendent, so indescribable, it makes the cover that much more breathtaking. I’d dare you not to break out into sobs, but I am of the firm belief that it’s impossible and it’ll get to nearly everyone.
