{30 Seconds To Mars - "Stay" }

So you know that thing where you start out reading some article on the Internet, and then something on the sidebar grabs your attention, so you click on it, and then something on that thing's sidebar gets your attention and suddenly you have no idea why you're suddenly looking at The Daily Beast's list of the best and worst Rihanna covers ever.

This is, in fact, how I ended up listening (and watching) Jared Leto and 30 Seconds to Mars cover "Stay" at least 12 times on Monday. Really.

The rest of the covers? Eh. This one? Whoa. The best part is that you're watching Jared Leto in his giant sunglasses, thinking about all the things you know about Jared Leto, and seeing that he's not really trying that hard— and yet. You can't help but feel all the things. It's a powerful performance and it has given me an entirely new appreciation for the song.

Listen and watch the video above, and then don't call your ex. The song will make you consider it, but don't.


  1. glad i am not the only one that listened to this on repeat.

  2. I love your music recs, If you haven't already you should check out CHVRCHES, especially 'Mother Knows Best' - think it may be up your musical alley!
