Toxic Covers

When I started hunting around for a good Britney Spears cover to feature this week, I didn’t expect the most covered song on YouTube would be her 2003 hit Toxic. Yet there they were, video after video of the song nominated for Best Dance Recording being reworked in genre’s ranging from heavy metal to vintage torch ballad (some racking up millions of views). Credit songwriter Cathy Dennis for writing something that works in so many different musical styles.
