Video Saturday #7 – Covers

Saturday again! I hope you’re ready for today’s Video Saturday, which will be all about covers today. You know, cover version of songs.

Of course, first I have to mention the fantabulous band Tegan and Sara. I can’t possibly say enough good things about them. Here is their cover of Umbrella by Rihanna. Sadly, the audio quality isn’t that great, but you can download their Umbrella cover from Sendspace.

See the original version here.

Next we have the Stevie Ann cover of Britney Spears’ song Toxic.

Instead of linking you to the original version (why would you want to watch that anyway?), I’ll link you to yet another cover of this song: Yael Naim – Toxic (Britney Spears Cover).

And my newest discovery, Mr. Ruben Santos. He doesn’t have a head, but he has a nice voice. This is his cover of Wild World by Cat Stevens.

And last but not least the White Stripes cover of Walking With a Ghost.

  1. Hey! Nice blog there! But aren’t you a little bit obsessed with that Tegan and Sara band? Not a bad thing, though! ;)
    Keep up with the good work.
