BBC Live Covers

This is one of my fave things BBC Radio does with artist interviews. The artist has to perform one song by someone other than them. Most of the time it’s a song that’s popular right now. Bruno Mars just recently did California Gurls and is getting great reviews. The full version is below. Totally different feel to the song. Check it out!

Amazing, right? Here are some others. First one from the listeners: someone texted in that I should check this out when we were talking about the Bruno cover. Here’s 30 Seconds to Mars doing Bad Romance:

Here’s Paramore putting their spin on Kings of Leon’s Use Somebody:

And this has nothing to do with BBC, but as long as we’re talking covers and Kings of Leon I have to post the Sugarland cover of Sex on Fire (which I think is actually better than the KOL version).
