Vocalist Hildegard von Blingin’ transforms popular hits– such as Creep, Bad Love, and also What Is Love— into medieval-style ballads.

Showing a comparable panache for poetic language, Von Blingin’ remodels the verses of traditional pop tracks right into olde English verses. For Pumped up Kicks (initially by Foster The Individuals) the clever songstress sings:

All ye bully-rooks with your buskin boots
Best ye go, finest ye go
Outrun my bow
All ye bully-rooks with your buskin boots
Ideal ye go, ideal ye go, faster than my own arrowhead
