“Whatever You Like” may be one of the more poorly timed hits of the last few years. Just as America entered its worst recession in decades, T.I. releases a song about how much crap he can buy his girl. The video goes a step further, featuring him looking super sincere in front of an enormous swimming pool. Ridiculous.
Needless to say, “Whatever You Like” got its share of tongue-very-far-in-cheek covers (and a great Weird Al parody). One of the best was by Joan As Police Woman, the nom-de-song of Joan Wasser, who – not-so-fun fact – was dating Jeff Buckley when he died. It’s off her best-of-2009 album Cover, which features equally hilarious looks at Britney Spears and T-Pain.
