Midweek Makeover: Oh My God Edition

In 2007, Mark Ronson put together an album of cover collaborations called Versions.  He invited Lily Allen, whose star had just exploded, to re-record “Oh My God”, a track she’d covered on an earlier mixtape.  I’m already a fan of Allen’s flavor of Britpop, but I especially enjoyed it:

    Marvelous original. (I won’t repeat how I feel about Ms. Allen, as I’ve done so here before.)

    I’m glad you feel like this is a safe place, Peej. We all have our failings, and would that we could all be as brave as you in sharing them.

    That’s because you are a farangi. You can’t help not being as forthcoming.
