texas lost so now it's time to pull the covers over your head

Lykke Li joins a long list of people to cover the classic tune "Unchained Melody." It's most famous incarnation is the Righteous Brothers version immortalized in the film Ghost as the song playing when Demi gets muddy fingers while ghost Patrick Swayze feels her up from behind during pottery class. The Swede songstress covered it earlier this summer during an appearance on Australia's Triple J radio show.

And Justin Vernon strikes cover gold again, covering Bob Dylan's "With God On Our Side" at a Portland, Oregon show.

And finally, "we're not a Brooklyn indie band" MGMT teamed up with Bradford Cox (of Deerhunter and Atlas Sound) cover Pink Floyd's "Lucifer Sam" on Jimmy Fallon.
