One of my favorite things to do is browse youtube for cool song COVERS each month. These are some interesting ones that I ran across and thought you might like. Enjoy.

Avril does a pretty decent cover of Ke (dollar sign) ah, “Tik Tok” for Radio 1’s Live Lounge. It kind of bugs me that she has to read the lyrics though…

Adele covers Cheryl Cole’s “Promise This”. Though I love Adele’s singing voice and her second album is rocking, I really have issues listening to her speak. Is it just me? Very very talented gal, she is.

Love, love, love Ellie Goulding! She has such a unique voice, tone and talent. She does a good job covering Rihanna’s hit “Only Girl” again on BBC Radio 1 Lounge. I think maybe what doesn’t work in this specific cover is the choice of accompanying strings.

Taylor Momsen is an interesting artist to cover this song. Her rough voice gives the song a twist but I’m not quite sure that I like it. What do you think?
