Music Monday: Lissie

This week’s MM comes as a recommendation from one of my twitter pals, @clareyt after I tweet I sent out saying I had been playing Lady Gaga on repeat.

Below is the video for Lissie’s cover of Lady G’s hit single, Bad Romance {my favorite}. Lissie strips away all the glitter & pelvic thrusts down to raw, smokey vocals. Don’t get me wrong, I love Lady Gaga’s mind-blowing antics, but it’s refreshing to see the same piece of music interpreted differently by other artists.

Neat, right? I hope you liked it as much as I did. It’s also worth noting that if you liked this, you may want to check out Haley Williams’ rendition as well. Get it, girls!

    I’ve never heard of Lissie before, but WOW, I love her voice :)

    However, what really surprised me was Hayley Williams’ version of “Bad Romance”. Hell, I like it even better than Lady GaGa’s version! Thanks for sharing :) I just had to post it on Twitter!

    Her voice is SO great. I’m going to post some photos of the shoot sometime soon on my blog, so stay tuned.
