I'm going under

As you've probably discovered by now, I am a cover song fanatic. Drastically reinterpret any song and I'm likely to swoon. Unless it's bad. Then maybe not.

It's not just the novelty of this version of "Toxic" I like. I like how its striped down and the lyrics are put in the forefront, spotlighting how just how sad, self-destructive the nature of the relationship being described really is. Whatever. It's a great song regardless.

Toxic - Stevie Ann (Britney Spears cover)

Special thanks to Cover Lay Down an amazing blog which specializes in folk covers. Check 'em out.
