Straight Outta Compton
Why was this audio gem hiding from me? Nina Gordon, former member of Veruca Salt, recorded a cover of N.W.A.'s "Straight Outta Compton". It's just her singing with an acoustic guitar backing her up. It's a very strange and compelling dichotomy with the profanity laden gangsta lyrics and the folksy pop arrangement.

Direct link to the mp3 of the Straight Outta Compton cover. The lyrics are NOT SAFE FOR WORK so plug in your headphones if you are slacking off at work.
PS: Even though she didn't make my Top 5 Musical Crushes, she is definitely in the top 10.
