When most people think of Robyn, they think of dancing, and lots of it. Mark Northfield may have also thought of this, but in a much different manner while composing his cover of “Dancing On My Own.”

Northfield describes the cover as a “Melancholy waltzing cover of Robyn’s heartbroken, understated and gender ambiguous pop masterpiece,” and I don’t think there is any other way to describe it. He really pulls out the anguish of the lyrics that can be masked by Robyn’s dance heavy beats. Check out the cover below and let us know what you think:

  1. Im not really sure that I would have the used the “Oh Oh” at all in this cover song, I just feel that it might have worked without. Besides that, great voice, great piano, great cover song!
