6 Things: Radio 1 Live Lounge Covers

People reading this in the States are probably unfamiliar, but in the UK BBC's Radio 1 does a Live Lounge with popular recording artists. Besides performing acoustic versions of their own hits, the artists often do covers of other artists' songs.

Please take a few minutes out of your day to listen to six of my favorite covers from the Live Lounge...

The Saturdays covering The Four Season's "Beggin'"

Sam Sparro covering Estelle's "American Boy"

Jordin Sparks covering Katy Perry's "Hot N' Cold"

Paramore covering Kings of Leon's "Use Somebody"

Snow Patrol covering Madonna's "Ray of Light"

Katy Perry covering MGMT's "Electric Feel"

There are hundreds more covers out there, so please share your favorites, too!
