They Say It’s Your Birthday celebrates an artist’s special day with other people singing his or her songs. Let others do the work for a while. Happy birthday!

Whether it’s her wedding to Russell Brand this past weekend (it’ll last forever, I’m sure), her eye-candy videos (“California Gurls,” anyone?), or her collaborations with the likes of Snoop Dogg and 3Oh!3, Katy Perry seems to be everywhere these days. You may think she’s a pop genius or the reason why the television gods invented the mute button, but either way she’s managed to find her way into the public consciousness for yet another year.

Oh, and today happens to be her 26th, so happy birthday! We’ve featured a ton of covers of her songs in the past (catch up here), but here are five more. They range from the sublime (Weed and Foxes In Fiction’s “Teenage Dream”) to the ridiculous (Woodhands’ space-funk scream through “I Kissed a Girl”) to the super ridiculous (the polka version of “Hot n Cold”).

Check out more Katy Perry at her website.
