When people cover your song, it means you’ve made it. When they cover each song from your album, it means you could only be Beck.

Several musical acts are going to YouTube to pay tribute to the musician and his album “Morning Phase,” which is nominated for Album of the Year in the Grammys. It went up against the albums of British singer Sam Smith, music producer Pharell and global pop star Beyonce.

Each artist went and covered Beck’s song from his album and, at the same time, fiddled with the songs melodies harmonies with the different use of their voices, guitars, a cappella and a lot more.

The musician is set to play a collaboration with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin at Sunday’s Grammys. Most likely they’ll play one of the songs from “Morning Phase,” which made news last year upon its release. Beck made the album free to stream for all airline passengers who were using the Inflight Internet feature of Gogo.

We have some of the artists’ covers that you can listen to and then go ahead and listen to original versions. For those of you that feel that some of the songs ring a lot of bells, Beck has said that “Morning Phase” is sort of sequel to his album “Sea of Change”  that was released in 2002, which was also covered by other artists.
