Ryan Tedder and Sara Bareilles are two of my favorite singer-songwriters.
They’re both extremely talented. There isn’t a song that Ryan has written or produced that I haven’t loved. Aside from all the OneRepublic songs, he’s had a hand in crafting“Halo” for Beyonce, “Bleeding Love” and “Happy” for Leona Lewis, “Rumor Has It” and “Turning Tables” for Adele, “Already Gone” for Kelly Clarkson… to name a few. He’s fantastic.
Sara Bareilles herself is also a brilliant songwriter and musician.
But when the two join forces… it’s magical.
The first time they sang together was on a version of “Come Home” when Sara joined Ryan the the boys of OneRepublic.
Ryan recently made a cameo in Sara’s “Uncharted” music video.
And now, Sara released a version of her latest single, “Gonna Get Over You” featuring Ryan Tedder:
And here’s “Come Home” featuring Sara Bareilles:
Between the two songs, I prefer “Come Home”. I’m a sucker for emotionally charged ballads, which Ryan is amazing at writing. “Come Home” is just a solid song – both the original with OneRepublic as well as the duet with Sara. “Gonna Get Over You” is also a great song, a fun upbeat song. “Come Home” gives a better opportunity for the two to showcase their voices.
