As tout le monde knows by now, tomorrow Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP will drop, and given how impassioned her performance of “Dope” at the Youtube Music Awards one week ago was – musically she flies the highest when accompanying herself at the piano – it seems fitting on this Sunday evening to anticipate the occasion by sharing a memorable cover thereof found on Soundcloud by a little monster calling himself Silverkenon, who I’d wager is paying the song tribute from England: but whatever be his locale, his version is suffused with exquisite blue notes, though he blows a bit of levity into it with a few vocal purple passages as well.
