jessie j acoustic version

Hi guys!

I don't know if I'm the only person who thinks like that, but could it be that popsongs are much cooler in acoustic versions?
You know, I'm not a fan of pop music resp. the charts because in my opinion generally 95% of the top 100 are crap. I listen to music a lot when I'm online because I need this kind of background sound, however I don't want to always play my favourite bands in such a situation because I think they deserve to be more than just background music. Hence the radio.

Anyway, so I knew this song "Do It Like A Dude" by Jessie J before (from the radio) and didn't find it special. Just another one of these typical Rihanna-, Gaga- and/or Kesha-esque songs, neither my cup of tea, nor something special.
But hey, neither did I know Jessie J has a classic musical background, nor did I know she looks like a modern Snow White.

So I was pretty amazed when I happened to hear her doing an acoustic set at a German radio station today. It's surprising how good this song sounds as an acoustic version and how brilliantly she uses her voice to empahsize certain lines.

Clicking the screenshot will lead you to the full video of the acoustic song:

What do you think?
Does it sound better or worse to you?
Does this change of perspective (and sound) change your view on this song?
I'm curious.

Happy Thursday!
