Gnarls Barkley Cover Radiohead

There aren't many voices that can do justice to a Thom Yorke melody. (We saw a bunch of our favorite bands take on the OK Computer movements with OKX to varying results.) But it just so happens Gnarls Barkley have one of the better singers in the game. Gnarls have been covering In Rainbows' "Reckoner" in their live sets lately, and we finally found a YouTube clip -- from their set in San Diego three nights ago (right during Comic Con, no less) -- that does some audio and visual justice to Cee-Lo's take. Not even those introductory cigarette drags can get in the way. - Source

Violent Femmes Cover Gnarls Barkley

On St. Elsewhere, Cee-Lo and Danger Mouse covered the Violent Femmes' "Gone Daddy Gone." Gordon Gano & Co. have now returned the favor, offering their take on "Crazy." (Which, yes, true, has already been covered by almost everyone, from Twilight Singers to Nelly Furtado and back.) So far less than a minute's streaming, but even from this sound clip we can see that the Femmes are staying pretty true to the original's script: Gano even does the "ha ha ha" where Cee-Lo lays his laugh. Because it's the Violent Femmes, though, it's a lot creepier (in a good way). And it sounds like the Violent Femmes. - Source
