I never thought the day would come when I would post a Britney Spears song on this blog, but here we are. Today’s #coverversion Friday feature is Mark Ronson’s cover version of ‘Toxic’ by Ms. B.S.
it sounds like a sitar was fed in to a tree shedder
I’ve always held the opinion that this song is fantastic, and that the real tragedy is that she was the one who sang it. Produced by Bloodshy & Advant, the track was originally offered to Kylie Minoque who rejected it, and it sounds like a sitar was fed in to a tree shedder. Only in a good way.
Today’s cover version is by Mark Ronson featuring Tiggers take off the album ‘Versions.’ It’s a slowed down,funked up version with brass from the almighty Dap Band and a verse from ODB. Tiggers please, this track is the bidness.
And Here’s the original version of Britney Spears Toxic. As much as it pains me to say it, I love this song/.
P.S. For the record, I do think Britney Spears is capable of incredible feats – I mean, who else can make Vajayjay look bad just by getting out of a car. I’ve never looked at roast beef the same way since.
