3 Covers of Lana Del Rey’s Video Games

Video Games was one of the PeteHatesMusic Songs of 2011. It’s still good a couple of months into 2012. It’s so good, that other artists are providing their renditions of it. Unfortunately, most of these covers are slow and dreary, with little inspiration or originality behind them. If that doesn’t want to make you stop reading, I’m not sure what will. How about the fact I’m blogging while wearing no pants?

Okay, maybe I’m being a little harsh. It’s only because I like the original so much. You can check out covers of Video Games by English heavyweights Kasabian, Bombay Bicycle Club, as well as Toronto’s The Arkells. The original is at the bottom in case you still somehow have not heard it.
