It's Raining "Umbrella" Covers!

8/15/2007 2:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's the undisputed summer song of 2007, so it was only a matter of time until "Umbrella" got the "My Humps"/Alanis Morissette treatment. This time, the refreshing remix comes courtesy of that fresh-faced Mandy Moore.


Pepsi Smash has put together a series of covers for their website, including Rihanna's take at "Redemption Song," a Daughtry stab at "Sunday Bloody Sunday" and Bowling for Soup, who tackle Fergie's "London Bridge." While they're all fun, it's Moore's haunting cover of the Barbadian's hit that TMZ staffers have found to be hella (ella ella eh eh eh) good. (A similar cover on MySpace from singer Scott Simon is just as entertaining.)

Moore's no veteran to stripping down a pop uber-hit -- she did the same thing to her own saccharine "Candy," gutting out a bluesy version during her live shows.

Mediocre at best talent compounded by the fact that she is annoying as hell = NO SALE!

Her cover SUCKS. Scott Simon's is much much much better. All she's doing is singing the lyrics in a souless zombie way. Booooooooooooo!

Just watched "I'm Mandy Moore" on Oxygen last night. It was nice to see what a person releasing an album actually goes through. She seems so grown up and so sincere.

She's a talented actress and decent singer, but her mouth should not be on the mic...literally...her lips touching the mic.

Good remake by Simons.

Ok, I just watched that video of her cover of Umbrella, and it sucks just like the original. They play that song way too much. I wouldn't mind telling them what they could do with their UMBRELLA!!!!

I thought it sounded like a Bad Karaoke performance myself. Leave "Umbrella" to Rhianna

Oh come on. Everyone knows that the song for 2007 is "Chocolate Rain". That is going to be my wedding song.

Scott Simons version of Umbrella is so much better than Mandy Moore's or Rhiannas!

My favorite part is how she's all "I usually don't listen to Top 40, but this song is just too melodic."

So, she spews out Top 40 crap, but she's too good to listen to it? Does that mean she doesn't listen to her own music?

Wait, technically she can cos her records never make the Top 40.
