Lady Gaga, "Pokerface" [Messkid's Late Night Edit]
Messkid turns down the volume and turns up the blue lights for his re-working of Lady Gaga's pouty tale of the lamest super hero ever.
Nine Inch Nails, "Burn" [Live]
Every wonder what it would be like to stumble around on stage, head shaking, eyes darting this way and that, with Nine Inch Nails? This video kind of takes you there.
Arab Strap, "Why Can't This Be Love?" [Van Halen Cover]
Finally, the apologetic for Hagar-era Van Halen we've been waiting for: saucy Scots maximize the melody and minimize the sarcasm (kinda) for an oddly touching take on this '80s VH staple.
The Dream feat. Kanye West, "Walking on the Moon" [Moon Man Remix]
Big, breathless remix of brand new Dream song bursts with big drums and squiggling synths -- sounds more like "tripping" on the moon than walking, amirite? AMIRITE?
Bonnie "Prince" Billy, "The World's Greatest" [R. Kelly Cover]
If anyone could ratchet down the pomposity while maximizing the sincerity on this R. Kelly misstep, it's Will Oldham. Weird, and weirdly touching.
