Katy Perry   Black and Gold (Sam Sparro cover)

this dashing young man is Sam Sparro. the end.

Here’s a great little cover Katy Perry did for a new love song covers compilation for Valentines Day, Sweethearts 2009. Katy Perry covered Sam Sparro’s epic, GRAMMY nominated “Black and Gold,” — and once again — she did a terrific job!

Katy Perry is no stranger from covering beloved indie-dance tracks and transforming them to great, great acoustic wonders. Disagree with me like you will, but I still think Katy’s cover of MGMT’s “Electric Feel” was fantastic. You can’t deny that this girl can sing, even if she sings about kissing girls — which isn’t necessarily a band thing anyway.

Just like Lady GaGa, I really want to her an album full of tracks just like these. Better yet, maybe an acoustic Lady GaGa/Katy Perry collaboration album. Hmm. While I daydream about popstars with actual singing ability picking up a guitar/getting on the keys while singing, you go listen to this cover:

Before I let you download Katy Perry’s cover of “Black and Gold” — did you know that Adele covered the same song too? I didn’t! Why didn’t anyone tell me…

With friends like these… who needs friends – Blair Waldorf.
