Listen to Vampire Weekend's Rowdy Cover of Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines"

At a recent session for BBC’s Live Lounge, our favorite Ivy League gents Vampire Weekend goofed around with an awesome cover of Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines.” It sounded like a party in the booth when the group kicked off the bumping jam with an “OW!” and plenty of rowdy background vocals and noises. (Also, is that a cowbell we detect?). Ezra Koenig lays it on thicke with his best impression of the singer’s falsetto, while his bandmates deliver a chesty “HEY HEY HEY.” Also, stay tuned for the latter end of the song as Koenig mumbles through T.I.’s rap.
