Kings Of Leon were recent guests on BBC 1′s Live Lounge where they performed new material from their upcoming album Mechanical Bull, and covered Robyn’s effervescent “Dancing On My Own.” Their rendition is padded with throaty earnestness that brings the sadness out of the track. Watch the cover and hear the new songs below.

  5. unbelievably boring

  6. Never heard a cover of this song that is at least half as good as the original.

  7. A lot of artists have covered this. This is one of the better versions I heard by Night Beds:

  8. I actually really like this.

  9. I thought this was soulful. Yeah, I think Robyn nailed it the first time, but if I was hammered at a karaoke bar I’d be doing this version.

  10. I know it’s not a competition but… The Vampire Bats do it better!
