In our first showcase, some of our users recommended various Youtube covers that weren’t posted (and please, feel free). This cover, in particular, of Beirut – Postcards From Italy was done exceptionally well. Two French musicians, Agathe (on the uke) and Fine (pronounced in the French manner, as “feene”, per their Myspace page, on guitar and ‘hand’ trumpet) retell the reasons why Beirut’s enchanting music is  so lovable.

Staff member Lewis first linked this video of Greyson Chance covering Lady Gaga – Paparazzi yesterday when it had somewhere around 20,000 views, and has gone viral beyond belief with nearly 2.1 million views as of this moment.  Greyson, a sixth grader, performed at his school’s “Chorus Performance Night.”  Many are telling Justin Bieber to ‘move aside’ for Greyson, however Greyson is genuinely talented in his own light.

Lastly, Channing Freeman recommended Boyce Avenue covering Wyclef/Akon – Sweetest Girl, and it speaks for itself.

"Sweetest Girl" is a song that probably no one knew the title was actually that. That's what happens when you reference Wu in your song

P.S. For morning/daytime program people, Greyson will be on Ellen Degeneres's talk show on Thursday, 5/13, I believe, if you're interesting.

Actually, I lied.... Look at this cover of hers if you're going to look at either of these. It's "I Will Follow You Into The Dark" with perfect harmonization.

That Greyson kid better stay in school and live a normal life as much as possible because if he goes the Hollywodd route he'll be screwed for life.

That paparazzi kid is brilliant. I hope he never ends up getting marketed like Justin Bieber or other child stars. He honestly has a bright future ahead of him.

I hope Greyson will inspire more people to cover bad pop songs and improve on them thus making radio music easier to stomach.
