Under The Covers – UK Edition! [Updated]

“Great Things Are Covered”  – Anonymous

This should be the first of hopefully many posts highlighting some of my favorite covers.  In today’s Special UK Edition:

Lily Allen – Womanizer (Britney Spears Cover).  I’m not a huge Lily fan but she strips Womanizer down and gives it some great English sass.  Very nice.

Leona Lewis – Run (Snow Patrol Cover).  This a rather straight-forward interpretation but Leona’s voice does the original justice and the final product is beautiful.

George Michael – As (ft. Mary J. Blige; Stevie Wonder cover).  I wasn’t familiar with the Stevie Wonder original when I came across this version but I still think I prefer this one more: I really like Mary J.’s voice in this (it’s kinda rough!) and it’s got a gospel choir doing backing vocals! Woot!

Updated: Links fixed; my apologies.  Also, thanks to Sean for pointing me toward the fabulous “As” video:
