Take Cover! Richard Thompson Vs. Britney Spears

When is a cover song better than the original? Only you can decide. This week: Richard Thompson takes on Britney Spears’ “Oops! … I Did It Again.” MAGNET’s Edward Fairchild pulls the pin. Take cover!

The former Fairport Convention member and godfather of folk rock gives this performance with such a straight face, you question if his tongue is in his cheek or not. The jazz hands at the end might give him away.
