I’ll admit that I don’t actively seek out cover songs, so this award may be completely unwarranted for all I know, but this cover of Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” by Orba Squara wins the best “Cover of the Year” in my book. It’s amazing.

Your Yellow Dress’ cover of MIA’s “Paper Planes” comes in a very close second.

Orba Squara – Poker Face (Lady Gaga cover)

Your Yellow Dress – Paper Planes (MIA cover)

Are there any other covers I should check out? I’ll be doing more complete features on Orba Squara and Your Yellow Dress soon…they’re both really awesome.

Oh my, the difference electronics and sex appeal can make!

    Joan as Police Woman does a great cover of T.I.’s Whatever You Like. Not sure how new it is but good nonetheless. I’m pretty sure you can still grab it here…

    As far as pretty covers of mainstream pop songs,

    There’s the Single Ladies cover by Pamplamoose. You probably ran into that if you were on the internet much when it was going viral…

    And there’s this Pokerface cover by the lovely Ukuleleist Molly Lewis:

    well… not necessarily pop cover, but how about a rather cheesy cover of the Pixies’ “Here Comes Your Man” by Meaghan Smith?
