I'm not really sure where this thread belongs to, but anyways, I have just watched this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MF6hpphWjE0&feature=related and I had very mixed feelings about this attempt of cover... I didn't like it for many reasons, she was reading the lyrics and didn't took the time to learn the pace and rythm of the lines, she tries to improvise new melody variations throughout the song that doesn't fit most of the time and she doesn0t stick with those so the song make a little sense, she changes the beat frequently, her voice is not that bad but kinda weird... I'm just posting this to kind of keeping the forum alive, bighead's thread about it really got me (???)...


OMG now this is a very very good cover!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zngv9CWEIrw&feature=related I love the way she hits the guitar, lol.

To me the cover just sound boring and generally sloppy. Though I wonder why everybody says she's amazing... Probably has nothing to do with her looks or anything.

I liked Dance, Baby Dance better.

That intro sounds like the one of Blondie's Maria ...

I really enjoyed the second one better, love the way she covers it.

The third one sings really great though.

This is what happens when parents tell their kids that they can become whatever they want, and say that everything they do is good.

Axis of Awesome have somewhat ruined that song for me. I keep waiting for "'Cause I'm not here for you entertainment..." (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pidokakU4I#t=3m30s).

I'm not a fan of this cover at all. Just doesn't sound good.

I figured the link would lead me to that video. Yes it's the best version.

Definitely like the blonde girl's cover the most. I'd even listen to it over the original. KickHim's link was pretty good, but other than the fact that she has a sweet voice, the cover as a whole isn't really anything special. The blonde girl has way more skill, and really owned the song.

Plus, dance, baby, dance was cute :D

Edit: when the girl in KickHim's video talks at the end, it totally ruins any goodness in her cover. Ugh. Can you play up the "I'm such a cute sweet dumb little girl" act any more? Blonde girl definitely seems to have more personality, as well :P
