Earlier this afternoon Zooey Deschanel tweeted a link to a cover she and M. Ward (otherwise known as She & Him) did of Buddy Holly's "Oh Boy" for an amazing-sounding Buddy Holly tribute album. It's the perfect peppy, happy soundtrack to a sunny summer afternoon. I've been listening to it nonstop! (Listen here)
It reminded me of seeing She & Him last summer here in NYC. They were awesome, and while I love their original songs, the cover they did of "I Put A Spell on You" (originally by Screamin' Jay Hawkins) as an encore was definitely my favorite part. It was epic. Zooey (Zooey, can I call you Zooey?) was so adorably bratty the way she sang it. Here it is:
One more She & Him cover, just because. It's one of my favorite Beach Boys songs, also perfect for a sunny summer day. Happy Friday, friends.
