Sam Smith's tearjerker of a ballad "Lay Me Down" gives us the sads every time we hear it, but we feel can't help but feel the total opposite after listening to Hozier's recent cover of the tune. 

It all went down at BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge when the Irish singer/songwriter decided to tackle the sixth In the Lonely Hour single, and we seriously cannot get enough of it. Alongside his band and some back-up singers, Hozier somehow revamped the somber tune into a lively Motown-esque jam.

Since both talents are set to storm the stage at our 2015 iHeartRadio Music Festival, we can only hope that they'd take the opportunity to churn out a live collabo of "Lay Me Down." It might sound like a long shot, but maybe it isn't too far of a stretch considering Sam's recent tweets about the rendition.
