Take It Off

In general, everything about Ke$ha's music makes my ears want to hide in the corner under a pile of blankets, and if I pay too much attention to her stuff when it's on the radio, I can totally tell she's the kind of woman who I really just want to avoid at all costs.

Today, though, I can't stop listening to this video, which is a cover of Ke$ha's Take It Off:



It does what I love about a well-done cover, which is that it takes the song in a different direction from the original and opens up the possibilities of the song.

As soon as I can stop replaying this, I'm going to listen to some of her other covers.

What are some of your favorite covers, and why?
