Electric Feel: Covered

October 15, 2008


I’ve always been a sucker for girl covers of awesome songs (see: Lily Allen and Naive). Since seeing Katy Perry at the VMA’s a couple of months ago, I learned two things; that she should never attempt to sing a Madonna song again, and that she is Zooey Deschanel’s look-alike but with bigger boobs. For these reasons I had always hoped that there could be some redeeming quality of hers to make me overlook the time I listened to her songs on Myspace. It turns out, this song is it. This cover of MGMT’s “Electric Feel” was the fastest to-library track in my history (I only had to hear one verse to know that it was worth a spot in my library). I’m anal when it comes to stuff that gets into my music library, and I understand that the longer a song has been there, the harder it is for me to delete it, hence the precaution. This track will keep me from wanting to strangle Katy in the way that I wanted to strangle Zooey during “The Happening,” at least until her next single. Oh, and she has a sweet set of pictures of her wearing wayfarers on Flickr.
