Jam of the Week: "Old Flames Can't Hold a Candle to You" by Kesha


In celebration of Kesha completing rehab, I'm dedicating Jam of the Week to one of the singer's lesser known songs. Kesha, who has officially dropped the dollar sign from her stage name, recorded a cover of Dolly Parton's "Old Flames Can't Hold a Candle to You" for her Deconstructed EP that was released last year.

The EP was only available through her official website and features acoustic, deconstructed performances of several of her songs. So why include a Dolly Parton cover? Well, Kesha's mother wrote the song all the way back in 1978. It's a beautiful and timeless song!

If you think Kesha is just an autotuned boozehound, I implore you to take a listen to this, because the girl's got talent!
