The Robot Covers The Vampyre: Hear Britney's Version Of Madonna's "Burning Up"

So, Britney Spears is apparently going to "sing" Madonna's 1983 classic "Burning Up" on her upcoming Femme Fatale Tour. And it turns out there's a full studio version of Wigney's cover, too.

This is great! It's probably my favorite single from Ye Olde Vampyre. So naturally it flopped when it was originally released.

I played Madge's original once at a house party I DJ'd and the place went nuts. Britney's version is totally fun, too. Between this and her appearance on Rihanna's "S&M" remix, who knew there was still some action left in the robot slag?

Meanwhile, Madonna is probably all, "Brava, Britney. And thank God — finally, someone who makes me sound like a good singer."
