We’ve already heard many “Fuck You” covers. Not surprisingly, the Cee-Lo Green lovin’ keeps on comin’—and The Lady Killer isn’t even out for another month! The latest “Fuck You” comes from a recent BBC Radio 1 performance by Pixie Lott. It being radio, Lott technically covers Green’s sanitized “Forget You.” Yes, it loses a little something without that joyful F-bomb, but the British pop star doesn’t hold back elsewhere.
Lott’s enthusiasm is infectious. Her perky vocals skip along, nailing the joy-in-pain delivery. Funky riffing, box drumming, and hearty maracas propel the acoustic tune. Download the MP3 below. British readers can watch a video of the performance at the Radio 1 website.
