If you've been around a radio any time this year, you have undoubtedly heard Katy Perry's toe curling hit Hot 'n' Cold. Unless you have a very high tolerance for dance pop, it probably sent you running for the hills praying that you would never have to hear it again.

Well, indulge us for a second. Imagine that those irritating synth beats were replaced with a more wholesome accordion, and that Perry's voice exchanged for one with an endearing Ukrainian accent. Sound odd? That's exactly what the Ukrainian band Los Colorados have done, and we think it's an enormous improvement to the original.
