Lissie covers Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance

August 3, 2010

I love Twitter. And I love Paste Magazine. And when the two get together, beautiful things happen, mostly things related to all that is awesome music.

Scrolling through my tweets this morning, I stumbled upon this one from Paste Magazine proclaiming how David Lynch announced his love for Lissie with four tweets (in a row!) about the up-and-coming folk-rock singer/songwriter. I knew who David Lynch (Mulholland Drive, Lost Highway, The Elephant Man) was, but this alleged Lissie character was still a mystery. So, I clicked.

Best click of my day. No contest.

The post itself wasn’t anything worth tweeting about — unless you’re a serious David Lynch (or Lissie) fan, I guess — but Paste put a link back to a March post they did on Lissie covering Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance, re-posted below. (Thankfully, this video isn’t as eerily creepy as its predecessor.)

Freakin’ amazing. She also does some pretty inspiring covers of Bob Dylan’s Ramona and Kid Cudi’s Pursuit of Happiness on her YouTube channel, and her debut album Catching a Tiger is worth a listen, though I haven’t given it a full run through yet because Bad Romance has been on repeat.

So, does it top Greyson Chance’s performance of Paparazzi at his middle school talent show? Probably. But I have to admit that I’m a little terrified of what the legion of Greysonites might do if I challenge his reign as Best Lady Gaga Cover of All Time, so I’ll stick with saying that it’s now officially a shared title.

    I’m curious to find out what blog platform you are working with?
    I’m experiencing some minor security issues with my latest site and
    I would like to find something more safeguarded.
    Do you have any suggestions?
