John Legend and the Roots cover Arcade Fire's 'Wake Up' at a promotional event in New York last week.
The track doesn't appear on the combo's album, despite it also being titled Wake Up!, but it does have its very own Spike Lee-directed video.
That was pretty bad.
Not as good as the original. I had a feeling the cover was going to be Wake Up.
dunno what all yall problem is
Digging: Tigers Jaw - Tigers Jaw
yeah that was pretty alright
Sounded like he botched some of the lyrics. Cover had nothing on the original.
I don't know, I still think this is pretty dope.
at least they're embracing each other.
Guh, I kinda thought this was gonna kick ass, but they just kinda butchered it
at least ?uestlove rips it up.
i was trying to like this but it's really hard
Eh, the chorus is pretty good, however, the rest of the song suffers from a too subdued guitar and Legend's voice not really fitting. Props to the background vocalists and ?uestlove though, they're spot on.
I didn't think there was any way that a talented tandem like this could sound so shitty..... but it happened.
