Someone on Twitter revealed that 'Torn' by Natalie Imbruglia is actually a cover and it's blowing people's minds

It’s not even a cover. It’s a cover of a cover.


‘TORN’ IS AN iconic track. A perfect choice for predrinks, nice to listen to on the bus and one you can enjoy while you’re cleaning.

There’s no time or mood that this song isn’t appropriate for. It’s a work of art. The most important thing that Natalie Imbruglia has ever done, perhaps.

So a lot of people were really disappointed to find out that it’s actually a cover. Of a cover.

Like the carpet being ripped out from under you.


People aren’t taking the news very well.

Finally, here’s Natalie Imbruglia’s version, just so you never forget how good it is:
