Return of the Son of Covers Week (Part Deux): Special "Battle of the Bands" Edition

Britney Spears versus Richard Thompson in a cage match to the death.

Incidentally, I saw Thompson last night (at the, alas, soon to be defunct City Winery in Manhatan) and he was brilliant as ever; he did an apparently as yet unrecorded song called "Crocodile Tears" that reduced me to helpless giggles. I'll try to find a vid of it for posting when I've worked all this covers shit out of my system.

First time I've heard Britney do this and I enjoyed it more than I expected. And she gets extra points for writing it.
RT gets points for sheer chutzpah, and for his guitar playing, wondrous as always.
So the winner is, in a split decision....
Richard Thompson!

Great concept, Steve.

Both are good! Buy I prefer Thompson's version.

I think Brittney's video is pretty clever.

Very cool that RT found a good song while we all ignored it because it was Brittney. (All right, I ignored it!)
