This cover of Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" by 22 year-old Allana Verde takes a 180 degree turn from the fun and bubbly version we all grew up listening to a much darker, ballady tone.

The song, newly titled "G.I.R.L.S. [Girls Involved in Real Life S**t]" is off Allana's Neo-Nostalgia EP which you can currently download for free at

If you liked that version, you must check out her most recent release - another moody cover. This time she takes on and re-imagine's  Janet Jackson's "Love Will Never Do (Without You)".  Listen to the track below.
