Song of the Day posts one cool cover every morning. Catch up on past installments here.
There are some pop songs that always inspire great covers. “Toxic” is the prime example of this. Almost any cover of this song, no matter how uninspired, tends to be enjoyable. “Umbrella” is another example, “Bleeding Love” a third. Covers of cheesy pop hits sometimes coast on novelty alone, but for whatever reason these songs generate cover gold.
“Tik Tok” is one such song. Awful as the original is, the covers are pretty fun. And it doesn’t get much more fun than Oh, Be Clever. The cover itself sounds fine, but the video just slays me. This may not be entirely intentional on their part. Ukulele boy is just so enthusiastic. Big Ke$ha fan I guess.
