Oooh, baby it’s raining…

Last night Jason Calcanis posted a tweet about an interesting cover of Rihanna’sUmbrella” by Italian pop/punk band Vanilla Sky. It’s a pretty good cover and the video is certainly a lot of fun, with cute guys even!

I think I might have heard about other people covering “Umbrella” before, but I never realized just how many singers have done their own version — cover or spoof — of the song. It is a good song, but it’s not my most listened to on the album and I think I completely missed when it was out on the radio since I don’t listen to radio or follow charts, but clearly it’s a big hit with many artists over many genres with at least 27 (per wikipedia) covers/parodies having been recorded or performed. Sadly I don’t think anyone else has done a video quite as much fun to watch as Vanilla Sky’s.

    That was a lot of fun with some eye candy indeed. I kept wishing that they would have done the silver or gold body paint (and nothing else ) when spoofing Rhianna’s Goldfinger scene, but their take on that was hilarious!
