Voyou Désœuvré

There must be someone employed by Jo Whiley whose job it is to think up the worst possible misinterpretations of songs, so that unlucky pop stars get to perform them in the Live Lounge. Girls Aloud, the best pop group in the world right now, perform “With Every Heartbeat,” one of the best songs of the past year and a natural fit for GA’s style. And I don’t think it would be possible to come up with a worse version:

Watch: Girl’s Aloud’s depressingly bad cover of “With Every Heartbeat”

    This cover is so bad it’s hilarious. I am particularly horrified / fascinated by that uncommitted plop of piano notes that is dropped in every few bars. It’s like hold music.

    “It’s like hold music.”

    Or, worse, Elton John.
