Shadow Puppets, Katy Perry, Lily Allen and Dr Fox's Old Timey String Band attempt Covers

I came across a number of wicked cool covers. There is something special about a cover by an artist you appreciate, especially if the cover is of a song you couldn't previously care for. Let's take S.O.S. from Rihanna for example. The Last Shadow Puppets did a rough cover of it, and now I think I kinda like the track.

Lily Allen and Kate Nash have a voices quite similar to one another, but unique in the greater music field. Lily Allen covers The Kook's Naive track. It's really great:

Katy Perry took an interesting jab at Electric Feel by MGMT. I'm undecided.

Dr Fox's Old Timey String Band did a sweet number on Kids (by MGMT).

When I first heard the S.O.S. cover I couldn't stop laughing. Miles's incessant whispering is so creepily histerical.
