Yay or Nay: The Elwins and Luke Lalonde cover Beyounces Countdown

I haven't encountered a cover that wowed me lately. Yet, I found an email with this cover in my inbox and since then, I just wish that there was a MP3 version of the song as I've been endlessly repeating the song on YouTube.

It's a collaboration of Toronto pop rock band, The Elwins and the front man of Born Ruffians, Luke Lalonde, covering Beyonce's Countdown.

To be honest, I was very surprised to learn that his bohemian rhapsody is actually a single of the former Destiny’s Child singer. I don't listen to any top 50's on the radio. I expected all her songs to be more up-tempo dancing tunes. 

This very chilling melody has been modified with The Elwin's signature charming lollipop tune flavor. On top of that, the song was sugarcoated by Lalonade's super high-pitched voice, adding more hooks to the song.


  1. Awesome review! Glad you dig it! You can grab a copy of the MP3 here:
