Watch Haim and Lorde Do a Great Cover of Sheryl Crow’s “Strong Enough”

Haim Lorde

Who knew old school country radio songs could sound so good? Well, apparently HAIM and Lorde.

Both acts love doing covers, but this collaboration came as a surprise a few nights ago at VH1’s “You Oughta Know” concert at New York City’s Roseland Ballroom. HAIM have done a rendition of Sheryl Crow’s “Strong Enough” before for Australian radio, but this version kicks things up a notch. Bringing the New Zealand lady of the year out to join them was a good call; Lorde’s low vocals work strangely well on this song.

Watch a video of the performance below and let us know what you think!

    I think it’s her hair and 8-shades-too-dark lipstick, but something about Lorde makes her look like a strung out 40 year old as opposed to her 17 years. Or maybe her weird movements just make her look like a witch on drugs — the kind you see pacing around next to the liquor store on the corner talking to someone that isn’t there.
