1. I picked this song for my inaugural "Alexandra Sings" video because it is super duper fun to sing. My cover is a capella, but in the original, the dark lyrics and dirty keyboard sound oppose the childlike, sing-songy quality of Grimes' voice. It gives me the chills. Also, I watched a great MTV interview with Kathleen Hanna and Grimes yesterday, where they had some interesting things to say about riot grrl and feminism. I recommend checking it out. Thanks for watching!

  2. My second video is "Son of a Preacher Man" by Dusty Springfield. My friend Kristen requested that I cover this one. I do love this song, especially because I remember once when I saw Tori Amos perform live (her '96 Dew Drop Inn Tour, to be precise), she played the song in its entirety before coming on stage and starting the show. The lights were out, and it was just Dusty and her tale of naughty love ruling the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall's sound system, egging on several thousand fans for a few minutes while they hungrily awaited Tori's grand entrance. Great memory, great song. Thanks Kristen!
