The xx Cover Beyonce’s ‘I Miss You’: Surfer Stephen’s Viral Video Of The Day

Alternative band The xx got in the Valentine’s Day spirit yesterday by releasing a cover of Beyonce’s song, “I Miss You,” for the holiday.

I’m not sure how I feel about it, but the only thing on the internet at the moment is all these crazy videos of that meteor in Russia. If you haven’t watched any of them, you should. They’re pretty crazy and why does Russia have so many surveillance cameras everywhere?

Anyway, I thought we’d take a look at some other alternative covers of pop songs for today’s Viral Video of the Day.

There are songs we hear over and over and wish they’d just go away…insert “Gangnam Syle” here.

But the right song re-done by the right artist can turn even the worst song into something fresh and new.

The xx – I Miss You (Beyonce cover)

The Kooks – Kids (MGMT cover)

Flaming Lips – Borderline (Madonna cover)

Ted Leo – Since You’ve Been Gone/Maps (Kelly Clarkson & Yeah Yeah Yeah’s cover)

Start your weekend the right way…with Surfer Stephen and his favorite viral videos! Check out some clips below:
