Brits Sam Smith & Ed Sheeran Cover Hit Songs About Cars

Two of Britain's biggest current pop stars -- Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran -- have videos out which feature them covering hit songs acoustically, and both songs happen to be about cars. Sam Smith performed a gorgeous, jazz-inflected version of Tracy Chapman's 1988 top 10 hit "Fast Car" for BBC Radio 1's "Live Lounge" series, which features today's biggest acts recording acoustic versions of other artists' hits. Ed, meanwhile, recorded an acoustic version of the Snow Patrol hit "Chasing Cars" for MTV.  In this case, the cover makes sense, since Ed is good friends with the members of Snow Patrol.…
