For me, the standard in novelty covers of Royals was set by the"Sad Clown With the Golden Voice" version.

Oh she nailed it. I especially dug that she started the video with outtakes.

I don't know what you call that sound that the cup makes when it's spinning around before coming to rest, but using it as percussion was pretty clever.

heh, can someone make a list of all the lorde cover FPPs we've had? I think there's been more than 10.

For a loose definition of "cover":
Busy Signal
Alex Boyé
Bruce Springsteen
Pet Collective

This is great-- I too admire the spinning cup.

I'm also ridiculously fond of this cup-cover of Bastille's Pompeii by two excellent sisters.

Daaaaaang. As someone still kind of new to making music on a piano and guitar, holy shit I can't believe how tough it is to sing, play something in time, and do both those things well at the same time. Basically what she did in this video is amazing and super difficult, that was really great (also love she started with outtakes).
