John Mayer - "Video Games" (Lana Del Rey Cover)

John Mayer Lana Del Rey

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s finally happened – John Mayer has covered Lana Del Rey. To clear up the confusion, no, you won’t get to hear him sing “take that body downtown” (sorry), because Mayer decided to go instrumental on this one: his take is all new-age undulating blues guitar set over some spacey drones with echo forceful enough to knock you out. The whole thing sounds like music for the acupuncture room in a fancy spa in space. Make fun of it though we might, Mayer’s dexterous guitar and chilling tone here makes us wonder if it could be more interesting than the original. Check it out.
