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.

  1. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Pixie does some amazing covers. I’m a sound engineer, and had the pleasure of working a private event she performed at over the summer, and she nailed a couple of Stevie Wonder covers. Covering Stevie takes some chutzpah, and boy, did Pixie hit it out of the park. Amazing for anybody, but especially such a young performer–can’t wait to see what else she comes out with as her career progresses!
