Out of this weekend’s Saturday Night Live episode, the most gratifying part was when host Lady Gaga poked fun at her song “Born This Way” for being a big cover of Madonna’s “Express Yourself.” It happened in one of the show’s finer moments (which included a probably spot-on Waking Up With Kimye segment) in which Taran Killam plays Counting Crows’ Adam Duritz hosting a fake commercial called Whaat?! The Worst Cover Songs Of All Time.
Given our own love-hate relationship with covers, we really appreciated this one.
"See everybody loves a good cover song, but sometimes, even the greatest singers make mistakes," says Duritz (who really comes off as an odd cross between his Billy Ray Cyrus character and um, Fred Durst??) before hilarity ensues - so much that we actually wish some of these covers would make it out into the world so we could fully appreciate them.
