Listen to Bette Midler Cover of TLC's "Waterfalls"

by Gabby Bess

While we would have loved to hear Bette Midler rap, Left Eye-style, her cover of "Waterfalls" is negotiated gracefully. Aretha Franklin -- who recently covered "Rolling in the Deep" -- isn't Adele and, obviously, Bette Midler isn't TLC (despite her tripled image on the cover art) but we can appreciate both of the OG's takes on contemporary pop. We also can appreciate the alluring bongos on this "Waterfalls" cover, above.
