The XX - Crystalised (Gorillaz Cover)

Gorillaz recently took part in Radio One's infamous Live Lounge, performing 3 delicate versions of their own material and others; its worth checking out all of them, but the stand out track has to be the cover of Crystalised. Only somebody with the musical intelligence of Albarn could pull off a cover of The XX so beautifully; replacing the guitar with piano and adding a xylophone transforms the song into something eerily haunting. I personally can't stop listening to it.
