Doo Wop (That Thing) - Covers

Covers

Devendra Banhart has covered the song during live performances including Bonnaroo 2006, the Pitchfork Music Festival and Tim Festival 2006, in Brazil. Amy Winehouse also incorporated the song into her own "He Can Only Hold Her" at live concerts in 2006, 2007 and 2008. Rihanna covered the song while on Kanye West's Glow in the Dark Tour in 2008. The American avant-garde band Mr. Bungle often performed an excerpt of the song as an outro for their song Travolta (Quote Unquote) while simultaneously playing Hemanta Mukherjee's "Ei Raat Tomar Amar" during live shows in the late nineties, and up to their unofficial demise in 2002. Kanye West's protégée Teyana Taylor, signed in 2012 to his G.O.O.D. Music label, released a mixtape in early 2012 called The Misunderstanding of Teyana Taylor, which draws particular influeunce from much of Hill's work. One of the tracks, called "Lauryn's Interlude," features Taylor performing a shortened, A Capella performance of Hill's classic song.

Famous quotes containing the word covers:

    The covers of this book are too far apart.
    Ambrose Bierce (1842–1914)

    Here a pretty Baby lies
    Sung asleep with Lullabies:
    Pray be silent, and not stirre
    Th’ easie earth that covers her.
    Robert Herrick (1591–1674)

    What art can paint or gild any object in afterlife with the glow which Nature gives to the first baubles of childhood. St. Peter’s cannot have the magical power over us that the red and gold covers of our first picture-book possessed. How the imagination cleaves to the warm glories of that tinsel even now! What entertainments make every day bright and short for the fine freshman!
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
