Hayley Williams - Teardrop
As I've said before, no song is above being covered. Anyone can have a go at anything they fancy, but there are bands and singers that you've got to have balls of steel to even try and attempt. Paramore's Hayley Williams has decided to record a version of 'Teardrop', and it's a bit of a car crash. She has a great voice, but Liz Frazer's jaw-dropping vocal and the Massive Attack production are so iconic that any cover really needs to do something extraordinarily different to make it work because a straight-up copy will never cut it against the original.
