Bowie cover of the week: Dan Berger performs “China Girl”

I selected this video as the cover of the week over “I’m Afraid of Americans” performed by a death metal band called Bloody Dead and Sexy, in part because the audio quality is a little better, and although the video element is static here, the other video was somewhat fuzzy. If Bloody Dead and Sexy takes a hard song and made it harder, Berger makes “China Girl” softer, continuing its evolution from a song that was originally performed in a serious and almost ominous way by Iggy Pop, then turned into a pop song by Bowie. It is a pleasant, smooth sounding rendition.
