Robyn Makes My Doves Cry

This cover is timely because it was just a little shy of a week ago that I was able to see Robyn in concert. She happens to be the most adorable human being to grace the face of the planet (yes she’s cuter than your baby) and her dance moves always make me squeal in delight just like every time I spy a pug butt from three blocks away. Don’t jude me, I just have a very keen appreciation of cute things.

The Swede took some time out of her busy schedule to do a cover of Prince’s timeless classic, “When Doves Cry”, and now I need to cancel everything I was supposed to do today just so that I can continue watching this video.


You Say He’s Just A Friend

Adam Green and Lissy Trullie’s cover of Biz Markie’s “Just A Friend” is pretty great even if it is recorded in a bathroom (or especially because it was recorded in a bathroom?) and even if it sounds to me more like, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”. A for effort and A for Lissy being a hot piece.

William Shatner Covers Cee-Lo’s “Fuck You” – Of Course He Did

I am no stranger to a William Shatner cover. I’m still reeling from his cover of Pulp’s “Common People”. Last night, he graced the stage of “Lopez Tonight” and did a cover of, what else, Cee-Lo Green’s “Fuck You”. For some reason the embed player won’t work on here, so click it baby, click it real good.

What’s interesting about the cover is that he actually sounds a little George Takei-ish. Also interesting? One of his backup singers is dressed like Captain Kirk.

Now enjoy the Shatner/Ben Folds “Common People” and if you still have time left to waste today, check out the George Takei soundboard.

Tori Amos Covers Madonna

The only thing missing from this video’s perfection is actual concert footage. The audio will have to do though.

Imagine Will Ferrell and Manny “Pac-Man” Pacquiao

Congressman Pacquio actually has a pretty nice voice, he reminds me of a better-looking and better-singing version of my Rhinestone Cowboy dude.

Autotune The BET Awards

I said gottdamn, this is the best award show appearance in the history of award show appearances. Antoine Dodson, the king of the “Hide ya kids hide ya wife” meme, was asked to perform a cover of his infamous news interview at the BET awards.

My favorite part of this has got to be the audience reaction; everyone is singing along to this jam.

Courtney Love Covers Gaga – So Does Rest of World

I’m one of those weird people that would watch and most likely enjoy almost anything Courtney Love does. Can she sing? I’m sure somewhere underneath the layers of tar on her lungs, absolutely. Can she spellcheck? HELL NO, but that’s part of her charm. Can she censor some of her thoughts? Only behind spelling mistakes. Can she cover Lady Gaga? Well, she can certainly try: UPDATE someone deleted the original video so you’ll just have to use your imagination to come up with what Court must sound like while covering Gaga.


Really though, when there are dudes like this doing GaGa covers, everyone else should probably just step aside and let greatness reign:
