Charli XCX covers Robert Palmer’s “Simply Irresistible”

British indie singer Charli XCX teams up with soul singer Janelle Monáe to create a bouncy, high-energy remake of the late Robert Palmer’s 1988 rocker “Simply Irresistible.”  Even though we’ve heard the song more times than was necessary during Palmer’s salad days, Charli XCX’s rendition is just manic enough to make it fun again.

Keep an eye out for this week’s Friday 5 Across the LIps when we explore five original songs with very imaginitive cover versions.
