Let's be frank, Mondays hold very little charm on their own. You know it, I know it, we all know it. But there are ways to make Mondays more palatable. To make the mundane start of another weary work week just a smidge more sublime. And one of them is music. But not just any music. Because why have any old music when you can have excellent cover music. And what's more excellent than some of your favorite ladies singing some of your favorite (and guilty favorite) songs. Starting with your friend and mine kelly Clarkson singing Sia's "Breathe Me."
Admit it, this version makes it sound mighty, might gay.
Ingrid Michaelson, "Toxic"
This version makes me feel a little better about dancing to this song until nearly dawn in my younger days.
Zooey Deschanel, "Wouldn't It Be Nice"
Manic pixie dream surfer girl.
Brandi Carlile, "Crazy"
Brandi could sing me the phone book, but Patsy is better.
