Pentatonix’s best covers come in the form of singles and EP’s, and 2020’s six-song EP and quarantine creation, “At Home,” was the perfect combination of new and old favorites. For a slow-burning soul crusher, check out their cover of Billie Eilish’s “when the party’s over.” To hear some truly insane beat-boxing and maybe the coolest a cappella has ever sounded, your go-to is their cover of Clean Bandit’s “Cologne.”
If you’re someone who likes mashups, go for their 2018 single “New Rules x Are You That Somebody,” a super creative arrangement that interweaves Dua Lipa’s 2018 hit and Aaliyah’s iconic jam. The group also covers music theater hits, like “Waving Through A Window” from Broadway’s “Evan Hansen” and the unforgettable smash “Shallow” from the 2018 “A Star Is Born” remake, which will likely be a karaoke go-to for many years to come.
If you’re a vocal purist, there are no better choices than their 2020 cover of the Tear’s For Fear’s 1983 hit “Mad World” and their 2019 cover of Simon and Garfunkle’s 1964 classic, “The Sound of Silence.”
