Watch Arcade Fire Cover Boyz II Men’s ‘Motownphilly’
By Shannon Carlin
When in Philadelphia, do as Boyz II Men do.
Last night (March 17), Arcade Fire made a stop in Philly where they showed off their superb vocal stylings with a little bit of Boyz II Men’s “Motownphilly.”
The Canadian band went not too hard, but not too soft, showing that Philly is slamming and they are not afraid of doin’ a little east coast swag. It’s the guy on the sax though that really makes this song work. We want more of him.
Arcade Fire is currently on tour in North America, making stops in Toronto, Austin, Cleveland, Denver and Brooklyn, for a two-night stand at the Barclays Center. The band is also set to headline night three of this year’s Coachella, alongside OutKast and Muse, taking place on two weekends in April.
