Marion Cotillard, Tori Amos, and Acting While Singing

We really should know this by now, but Marion Cotillard is awesome.

She just recorded “The Eyes of Mars” with Franz Ferdinand. It is quite possibly the best thing Franz Ferdinand has ever done.

Speaking of awesome covers, if you haven’t heard Tori Amos reinterpret Britney Spears’ “Hit Me (Baby One More Time)” as a ballad about spousal abuse check out the video after the break.

Why do they both work? Because the performers are acting the song. Hats off to you Marion and Tori. You’re doin’ it right.
