Beyoncélogues: Cover Songs, Kylie's Poetry and Daft Lyrics

Do you remember when Kylie Minogue got all serious about music, abandoned the 'Stock, Aitken and Waterman' version of hits and started hanging out with Nick Cave?

As part of this musical rehabilitation programme, Nick Cave brought her to the '96 Poetry Olympics in at the Royal Albert Hall and popped her up on stage, encouraging her to read the lyrics of 'I Should Be So Lucky' in the most ridiculously and wonderfully serious way.

It's like hearing a cover version of a song you thought you hated and then you realise that it's actually quite a decent song, it's just the original that was off putting - kinda like Fountains of Wayne's cover of Britney's 'Hit Me Baby'.

So it was with great joy that we discovered actress Nina Millin's, eh, Beyoncélogues.

If you ever wanted to hear Beyoncé songs told as the tales that they are then these do exactly what they say on the tin.


(And let's face it, it's not like you could ever sing them and sound anything like herself, so these are the next best thing you can learn.)

So let's cheer ourselves up on a Monday - are there any covers that you lurve or any that you hate (anything mangled by Westlife comes to mind)? And which song has the most ridiculous lyrics of  all time?
