Lies Lockdown

For a while now BBC Radio 1 have had their series Live Lounge on the go.

The format is pretty basic, an artist comes in and lays down a couple of their tracks live. What gives it the cake for me, is that the various singers/bands will also record a cover version of a current "hit". It's worth checking out the related videos to this White Lies cover of Kanye West's current autotune single Love Lockdown. There are some interesting surprises, and some you feel embarrassed for. As I type this I have just spotted Pendulum covering Coldplay's Violet Hill.
