I’d be remiss to simply overlook this: so, here. Here’s the video of Cyndi Lauper singing “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” with Arcade Fire at New Orleans JazzFest this past weekend.
The legendary singer was in town to sing a blues set at the event, and AF was there to, naturally, headline. Regine Chassagne essentially passes with a “karaoke” rating, and the pizzicato violin solo is just adorable.
I’m so glad I have this off my chest.
Arcade Fire are headlining Bonnaroo, Montreaux and a load of other festivals this summer. All dates through Sept. 3 are here.
