Take Cover! The Flaming Lips Vs. Madonna

When is a cover song better than the original? Only you can decide. This week: The Flaming Lips take on Madonna’s “Borderline.” MAGNET’s Edward Fairchild pulls the pin. Take cover!

Growing up in Oklahoma, I was told that more astronauts were from there than any other state; probably because you can see more stars there. So it almost makes sense that America’s biggest psychedelic band also claims the red dirt as its homeland. Here, the Flaming Lips (featuring Stardeath and White Dwarfs) show you what a Madonna song sounds like while speeding down I-44 on mushrooms with the windows rolled down in the middle of the night.
