Lady Gaga And Nathan Ferraro Vs. Peter Gabriel And Kate Bush: 'Don't Give Up'

Lady Gaga and Nathan Ferraro's cover of "Don't Give Up" leaked last summer. The video, however, never got released—mainly because the song didn't, either.

That said, the clip—a virtual re-enactment of the Peter Gabriel/Kate Bush original—popped up online on New Year's Day. I can't tell if I'm digging the Gaga/Ferraro rendition because I actually like it, or because I'm just a fan of the Gabriel/Bush tune and it's good to hear it again—albeit, someone else's take on it 24 years later.

Here's the Gaga video:

And, the Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush classic:

Nathan Ferraro is frontman of Canadian band Midway State.

    PopMuse, I believe it's out there.

    Moog, yeah, missed opportunity.

    JimmyD, Ha ha. Good'n.

    Natalie, maybe the video leak will speed things up?

    hun*ter, yeah, the whole thing is actually kind of shabby, quality-wise -- Would like to see the high quality version of the video. And it's good they went with the anime look here. I saw a still of them from the shoot...she was looking a tad haggard

    Paul, yes, yes, we know.
