So I was walking through the food court at Purdue University and I heard this song on the radio and thought I'd really like to cover it. So I did and here's the final product. I guess this song is originally classified as rock, since it was originally performed by Fleetwood Mac, but it also has a well known country version done by the Dixie Chicks. But I don't really listen to much country. I just heard this song and was captivated by it, as I know many are, even Smashing Pumpkins covered it. Since I'm known for doing everything in piano, I took the original strum of the guitar and turned it into a piano. The beginning is pretty much the same as the guitar strum, but once the song progresses, I decided to add my own rhythm to it. I hope you like it!

Lyrics:
I took my love and I took it down
Climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
'Till the landslide brought me down

Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?

Well, I've been afraid of changin'
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder, children get older
I'm getting older too

Well, I've been afraid of changin'
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder, children get older
I'm getting older too

So take my love and take it down
And if you climb a mountain and you turn around
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
The landslide will bring you down

And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
The landslide will bring you down
The landslide will bring you down

fantastic

I stumbled upon this song a year ago, but for some reason, i never got around to writing a review on it. So I'm doing it now.
Landslide was a song I heard a lot as a kid, mostly the cover by the Dixie Chicks. My neighbour always played their stuff, but this was one of the only ones that really stuck with me.
When I saw this landslide cover, I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't expect that on Newgrounds. When I heard the song, though. I was blown away. The soft piano, though repetitive, is not by any means annoying. The slow strings along with the very gentle vocals just worked with the song. You didn't try to do anything extremely crazy with it to make it your own. You kept true to the original, which I genuinely appreciate. After listening, this automatically became my favourite version of 'Landslide', even over the original or the dixie chicks cover. I sent this to my family immediately and still have it on my media player in my room and listen to it a lot. It's fantastic. Thank you for making this. Ten stars for sure.

Thank you, you don't know how much it means to me to know that you have brought this song into your world and made it a part of your daily life. That's what I want from my works, for people to be affected by and understand the beauty I'm trying to share with everyone. :)
