Avril Lavigne's acoustic cover of Ke$ha's 'TiK ToK': Watch it here

Peruse YouTube and you shouldn’t have a problem finding acoustic covers of clubby, synth-heavy dance hits. And sometimes, when the planets align, we’ll see a mainstream artist have a go themselves, like Chris Daughtry did with Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face.” This time, Avril Lavigne and her sparkly microphone take a mellower approach to Ke$ha’s pervasive 2010 single, “TiK ToK.”

    Gosh, I love Avril (or at least I did a few years ago), but not liking this cover. Its not the beat (well, it is a little) its just not right. She has a great voice, but ugh. NOT loving this. Not at all.

  • Mel

    Wow, talk about sucking all the life out of a song. This was pretty painful to listen to.

  • elchango

    It’s like a hot girl who turns out to be a limp fish in bed. So disappointing.

  • Flip

    I love it, it’s cute. At least she doesn’t have to attend AA meetings like Ke$ha.

  • Taylor

    I generally like Avril but this is pretty lame. And so much of that song is talk-singing. So, what’s impressive about that?

  • whatevs

    The problem with this is that she’s keeping the same tempo even though the music itself is mellow. It would’ve been better to sing it slowly like a ballad if she’s going to tone it down that much. Otherwise it’s just a boring version of an uplifting song.

  • HappeeGal

    It’s a much better BBC Radio One Live Lounge than she did the last time. It was cringe-worthy. Live Lounge makes or breaks quite a lot of artists – all do a cover as well as one of their own hits. Some are a-MAZING. Adele did one recently… stunning.
