Video: Miley Cyrus – “We Can’t Stop” (Bastille Cover)

September 11, 2013 4 comments

I just fell in love with Bastille. I mean, I already loved them for their debut album Bad Blood that debuted at #1 earlier this year in the UK  and was released last week in the U.S., but now the British band is covering Miley’s “We Can’t Stop” for BBC Radio’s Live Lounge and it is MAGICAL. Dan Smith’s elongated rasps makes the word “bathroom” sound alluring. And then add in the some strings and it’s like the image of Miley Cyrus licking things evaporates into a dull memory.

AND THEN, when they transition (and alter) the lyric “Only dad can judge us” into “Don’t Break His Achey Breaky Heart” aka Billy Ray Cyrus‘ one hit… is musical genius. And then their smiles during Achey Breaky… it’s my heart breaking because we aren’t married yetttt.

Stream Bastille’s album Bad Blood on Spotify and get it on iTunes.

p.s. Thank you Sean for sending this my way.
