4. Ke$ha – “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right”(Original by Bob Dylan)
I’m sure at least half of you have now officially stopped reading this article with the mere mention of the name Ke$ha, and I can’t say I blame you. Every time her pop songs like “Tik Tok” or “Your Love is My Drug” come on the radio, we usually switch the channel instantaneously. Most would consider her to be just another soulless pop star wanting to get as much money as possible, but when this little number popped up, a cover she did of a Bob Dylan song, I honestly could not believe what I was hearing.
The raw emotion she pours into this song, how she actually sounds like a great singer, it was the exact opposite of what you’d normally expect of her, and it could very well bring some listeners to tears how well she does this rendition. It just makes you wonder why she continues to make such bubblegum blandness when she could be doing songs like this. Perhaps, as she grows older, her future songs just might evolve into gems like this cover.
