You can’t celebrate Halloween without revisiting Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” The spooktacular track has sorta become the unofficial song for the holiday.

YouTube sensation Anthony Vincent gives the classic hit his signature treatment. He covers the track using 20 different distinctive singing styles, ranging from the Spice Girls to Rob Zombie and everything in between.

If you like what you hear, be sure to check out his YouTube channel. He’s taken on Ariana Grande’s “Problem,” Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” and Jason Derulo’s “Talk Dirty” to name a few previously.

We hope everyone has a safe and fun night. Happy Halloween everyone!!!

Listen To Bette Midler Cover TLC’s Waterfalls

In: Donovan, Music
bette-midler-waterfalls

Bette Midler pays homage to girl groups on her upcoming album It’s The Girls due in stores November 4. The 68-year-old icon covers classics made famous by The Shirelles, The Supremes and Martha and the Vandellas to name a few.

We’ve heard her pretty faithful rendition of The Ronettes‘ ’60s classic “Be My Baby” already. Today, we get to check out her take on “Waterfalls.” Why did she pick the TLC smash to cover? Here’s what she recently told Billboard magazine.

“‘Waterfalls’ was a heartbreaker, especially if you were a mom, and it had a big effect on me,” Midler said. “I never thought I would have the nerve to sing it, but we had an idea for it that works, and I am so glad I took the chance.”

Waterfalls” is by far the most contemporary song appearing on her latest LP. Unfortunately, she didn’t include any Destiny’s Child or Spice Girls in the mix. Even more unfortunate, Midler opts out of doing Left Eye’s rap on her cover. BOO!!!. I’d kill to see the Divine Miss M rap her little heart out. Check out the track below which premiered over at The Advocate.

Jessica Lange’s much-hyped cover of Lana Del Rey didn’t disappoint. Her alter ego Elsa Mars performed “Gods And Monsters” on last night’s Halloween-themed episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show. Lange served major Marlene Dietrich diva realness during her performance. She can definitely rock that feather boa like no other. Ryan Murphy wasn’t exaggerating with his description teasing the number.

As glamorous as it was, I’m still giving the edge to Sarah Paulson’s “Criminal” cover on episode two. Watching one twin providing background vocals for the other was everything. Do you agree? If you missed last night’s episode, Lange’s number was a definite must-watch. If you caught it, why not watch it again below. Enjoy.

sister-christina-like-a-virgin

Sister Christina became an Internet sensation with her rendition of Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Want To Have Fun” during the blind auditions on The Voice Italy. Week after week the singing nun wowed judges and viewers alike. It’s no wonder she ended up winning the second season of the singing competition. In a rather surprising move, Sister Cristina chose Madonna’s then controversial hit, “Like A Virgin” as her first single.

“I chose ‘Like a Virgin’ because I wanted it to bear witness to God’s power to move all things!” explained Cristina in a statement. “I see it as GOD’S TOUCH, when he called me to a new life, giving me back the purity and dignity of being his Daughter and being Loved by Him. And that’s the way it will be till the end of time!”

Sister Cristina’s debut album will feature two original compositions and ten cover tracks. In addition to Madonna’s classic track, she’ll take on “Fix You” by Coldplay and the Cyndi Lauper tune “True Colors” to name a couple.

Like Madonna, Sister Cristina headed to Venice to film the video. Unlike Madge though, she keeps her habit on and doesn’t writhe sexually on a gondola. Check it out below. I have to say, I like her rendition quite a lot. Be sure to sound off afterward.

Did you love watching Jessica Lange spectacularly cover David Bowie’s “Life On Mars” on the premiere of American Horror Story: Freak Show? If so, I’m sure you felt the same way about episode two’s musical number.

On this week’s episode it was Sarah Paulson’s turn to take the spotlight. She gave a flawless rendition of Fiona Apple’s “Criminal.” Love that she was able to provide her own background vocals due to having two heads. The whole thing was so whacky, it was awesome. I can’t wait to see what else Ryan Murphy has up his sleeves.

After what I felt was a rather slow premiere, the second episode had me captivated. Love the introduction of Michael Chiklis and Angela Bassett’s characters. And how insane is Finn Wittrock on the show? He makes Twisty The Clown absolutely sane. Speaking of which, I change my tune on how freaky Murphy’s clown is. The visual of him without his mouthpiece was terrifying. I’m definitely going to have nightmares because of that.

Did you enjoy the second episode? Who’s your favorite character so far? Did Paulson do Apple proud with her cover? Sound off below.

A grave wrong has finally been made right. When Clean Bandit revealed their latest collaboration, “Real Love,” with Jess Glynne, many, including myself, hoped it would be a cover of the classic Mary J. Blige track. Alas, it was an original composition. Thankfully, Glynne heard her fans’ outcry.

The 24-year-old English singer-songwriter delivers an acoustic cover of “Real Love” for BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge. Her gravely voice really shines during the performance. She does the What’s The 411? single justice. Mary would be proud. Give it a listen below.

Taking a page from his other series, Glee, Ryan Murphy will be uploading music from American Horror Story: Freak Show to iTunes. He revealed due to popular demand, a downloadable version of Jessica Lange’s cover of David Bowie’s “Life On Mars” will be available soon.

If you thought Lange’s performance on the premiere was fantastic, Murphy teases her Lana Del Rey cover featured in an upcoming episode will be “something to behold.” Kurt Cobain’s music will also be featured on the new season.

Did you watch the AHS: Freak Show premiere last night? I’m reserving full judgement after the next episode. The 90-minute premiere was a little too slow-paced for my liking. Also, Twisty the Clown wasn’t as scary as I had anticipated. Don’t get me wrong, he was creepy but he was a bit of a letdown after all the hype.

Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Lange were as fantastic as usual. Someone please give Paulson an Emmy statue please. It’s long overdue for her amazing work on the series. I can’t wait for the other ‘freaks’ to be introduced next episode which also happens to be 90 minutes long. Relive Lange’s performance below and share your thoughts on the premiere afterward.

bbc-music-beach-boys-cover

To say this Beach Boys cover is star-studded would be an understatement. Pharrell Williams, One Direction, Kylie Minogue, Lorde and a slew of others take on the 1960s classic “God Only Knows.” The new rendition is to help promote the launch of BBC Music.

“All of the artists did such a beautiful job I can’t thank them enough,” Brian Wilson has said of working with the stars. “I’m just honored that ‘God Only Knows’ was chosen. ‘God Only Knows’ is a very special song. An extremely spiritual song and one of the best I’ve ever written.”

Other famous faces contributing to the song and appearing in the sensational music video are Elton John, Florence Welch Stevie Wonder, Jamie Cullum, Emeli Sande, Paloma Faith, Chris Martin, Dave Grohl and the Beach Boys’ very own Brian Wilson. Proceeds from sales of the single are going to BBC’s Children in Need foundation. Check out the visual below.
