Covered… Lady Gaga and The Midway State “Don’t Give Up” (Peter Gabriel Cover)

A cover of Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush’s classic “Don’t Give Up” seems a little unlikely for Lady Gaga.  It also seems unlikely that she would team up with relatively unknown band The Midway State for the duet.  I think they do a good job of the song, however I feel there are some songs that should never be covered because the classic is beyond perfection.  This is one of those instances.  I think Gaga does a good vocal, but The Midway State’s lead vocalist, Nathan Ferraro falls short of creating an emotional connection with the song and with the listener and his voice lacks the depth and the star quality that Peter Gabriel has.  Check it out below and judge for yourself.
