Lily Allen Cover of "Womanizer" by Britney Spears

Britney vs. Lily: Whose "Womanizer" Is Best?

It certainly doesn't take long for a song to get covered these days! It's only been a few weeks since we first heard Britney Spears's "Womanizer," and British star Lily Allen has just released her own, slightly slowed down version.

I was actually surprised by how faithful Allen's version (which apparently has gotten her in a bunch of trouble with her record label!) is to the original — a few fewer vocal effects, maybe, and a little more downbeat, sort of "Lily Allen sings 'Womanizer' in a piano bar." I could see myself listening to it, but at the same time, there's just that special Britney energy to the original. Take a listen to both versions and let me know: Which "Womanizer" wins?

I like Britney's more because it sounds more energetic. Lily's is nice too though.

Lily's because it's her talent not some producer using a computer. I think Britney has no talent and without that amazing team of producers behind her she is worthless. Lily Allen can actually hold a note which I look for in song. But Britney's version is great for a club.

I often enjoy Britney's music to dance to, and if I were looking to do that, I'd like both versions. But I don't really like "Womanizer" as a dance song for some reason (bleh), and therefore I'm not interested in listening to Britney's version. It got old in one minute...too repetitive. However, Lily's version is much more interesting to me, and I actually listen to it. I do think, however, that her "womanizer womanizer..." part sounds a little too low/flat for the song. Annoys me just a bit.

I don't like Britney Spear's version - I always skip it on iTunes. Maybe I like Lily Allen's because it hasn't been over-played on the radio yet.

Heehee. Sorry Britney but I like Lily's better. Why is everyone so good at making Britney covers? Kind of like Yael Naim's version of Toxic. Soo pretty.

I went for Brit. Poor Brit everyone has to keep attacking her.

Lily Allen is the worst artist since Rihanna who is the worst artist since Britney. It's a slow steady descent into a hell of untalented "pop" acts that can't sing at all! Please no more from them!

I usually prefer Lily over Britney, but not this time. I prefer Britney's pop sheen and energy.

I like Britney's version. Lily is talented enough to come up with her own songs. Too soon for a remake.

Britney is a train wreck, vocally and emotionally. IMHO

Even though the original version is kind of a guilty pleasure of mine, I actually really enjoy Lily's take.
