Stand By Me
(Cover), by Florence and the Machine
(From the Final Fantasy XV
This song has grown on me so much, and not just because of its special meaning in Final Fantasy XV
(you hear it in the beginning of the game and think "this song is alright - a bit slow and out of place, though", and then, after you progress through the entire game and see how the characters' friendships evolve, and you hear it at the end, you cannot help but be brought to tears when you understand why they chose that song, specifically): recently, I went through some very dark times. Had it not been for my friends (including those here in the furry community - Adagio, BeardedDragon, Trace, Leeward, SilverFox, Ryall, and others, just to name a few), I am not sure what the outcome would have been; this song tends to make me think of those times.
This is only one of three song covers that I believe are better than the original. (The others being Johnny Cash's cover of "Hurt" and Disturbed's cover of "Sound of Silence").
