The medieval cover of Dolly Parton’s ‘Jolene’ is a bop

If Dolly Parton was spurned by a man in 1374, here’s what “Jolene” would have sounded like. 

Singer Hildegard von Blingin’, a YouTuber who covers pop songs in the style of a medieval bard, covered Dolly Parton’s haunting love song with some lyrical twists. Sure Jolene was doing Dolly dirty, but to do all that in the midst of a plague, the crusades, and feudal oppression? That’s just rude. 

“He talketh of thee in his sleep, and alas I cannot keep,” she croons. “From weeping when I hear thy name Jolene.” 

Hildegard von Blingin’s other medieval bangers include Shakira’s “Hips Don’t Lie,” Radiohead’s “Creep,” and Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance.” And all of them, unsurprisingly, pop off.
