Song of the Day posts one cool cover every morning. Catch up on past installments here.

As far as celebrity feuds go, the ongoing EminemMariah Carey beef (if you can even call it that) must be among the least interesting. Two artists who have no obvious reason to dislike each other trading media barbs and writing diss tracks? Meh. Being the slightly classier individual, Carey at least had the good grace to deny that “Obsessed,” her fuel to the fire, was about Em. Too bad she then went and dressed up as him for the music video. Sigh.

Let’s just move on. May Ling is a Portland-based musician building a following one raucous house party at a time. On High Score and Records’ free summer mixtape, she covered Carey’s “contribution” to the feud. Removed from the inane cultural context, “Obsessed” improves dramatically. Ling’s ghostly slow-grind vocals help.
