Everything Everything Cover Rihanna's What's My Name on Radio 1's Live Lounge

This happened on Tuesday morning, but it's about to tickle your fancy today. Everything Everything, that British art rock band who draw wildly affecting sounds of math rock, post-punk and electropop into one fun substance, took to BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge, and as all good performers do, went with a cover of a currently popular tune. Oh nah nah, what's their name? Everything Everything doing doing Rihanna Rihanna justice justice with with What's My Name, What's My Name.




Snagging backing vocals from Sunday Girl (who previously wowed us with a revision of EE's Photoshop Handsome) and Lianne La Havas, their funky, reggae-tinged and soulful cover of the chart-topper has me begging for more. 


Hey, let's play it again... Oh nah nah, oh ya ya!

Kylie Minogue Covers HURTS' Wonderful Life on Radio 1's Live Lounge

Just a few days ago, I lauded Foals' for their cover of Swedish House Mafia's One (Your Name), which took place on Radio 1's Live Lounge.


Today, we've heard Kylie Minogue doing HURTS' Wonderful Life on the program, and there's really not much else you need to say about that, other than...

Foals Cover Swedish House Mafia's One (Your Name) on Radio 1's Live Lounge

Oh wowee zowee who what and howee! On a recent trip through BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge with Jo Whiley, and as all guests who trek through her timeslot do, Foals performed a few songs from their recent album, Total Life Forever. On top of that, their cover song selection was one I had not anticipated in the slightest, yet it works quite nicely, as the boys give their best go at Swedish House Mafia's One (Your Name). Just...oh yeah!





The original track has been burning up dance floors both stateside and internationally, and one might insist that had this Oxford band created this song as performed live in the lounge, it would still be quite the chart topper it is as of now.


The  boys say: "It's got a really good energy to it...so we felt like we wanted to go back to our roots. It also has a topical reference to where we recorded the album at..."


Obviously, the release was crafted in Sweden. Obviously, I am 100% in love with this cover.

Scissor Sisters Cover Kylie Minogue's All The Lovers on Radio 1 Live Lounge

With both Scissor Sisters and Kylie Minogue slated to release extremely dance-centric albums at the end of this month, the former took their show to Radio 1's Live Lounge this morning and, as per usual, played a few of their own tunes and one cover song. Their choice? The latter's latest single, All The Lovers, done up like you've never heard before.



This could go quite nicely at a country hoe-down.


Don't believe me? Listen to their cover below.


Scissor Sisters' Night Work is out June 28 via Universal/Polydor and Kylie Minogue's Aphrodite sees a release on June 30 via Parlophone.
