It’s a Toto(l) abomination. On a par with William Shatners rendition of Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds (ok maybe not THAT bad), or Limp Bizkit’s massacre of Faith (a real ear bleeder that one) or Sandie Shaw’s seemingly helium enriched cover of Sympathy With the Devil and lets top off the musical woes with Take That Smell(s)ing Like Teen Spirit..or was that doggo?

The only cover version of Africa that I like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WdYCIqCj7IE
To help anyone who clicked on the link to recover

I'd say the worst recent cover was the one of 'You don't own me' by Lesley Gore. A song about female empowerment written and performed by a gay women. If there was EVER a song that didn't require a bloke rapping over it... bleurgh!

@_kara_ I think most songs don't need a random guy rapping over them. I can't pinpoint an example where this has led to an improvement. As for that link you've shared, it's turned my brain inside out!

I'm Orlf. It's a Norwegian name.

I'm glad you liked it.  You should try some of her others, especially her cover of 'Can you feel the love tonight' from the Lion King https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpnKGkrxVi4&t=5s
