Watch Lorde and Haim Lift Up Sheryl Crow’s ‘Strong Enough’

Haim, Lorde, Sheryl Crow, "Strong Enough," VH1 You Oughta KNow,

Haim have covered Sheryl Crow’s “Strong Enough” before, but not like this. Last night (November 11) at New York’s Roseland Ballroom for a taping for the VH1 You Oughta Know concert special, the Days Are Gone trio brought out “Royals” queen Lorde for a swaying, synth-lit performance of the 1993 Tuesday Night Music Club ballad, which has hung around long enough to outlive any mall-bound associations — and to make Crow’s recent transition into country now seem only fitting. The sisters Haim’s previous “Strong Enough” came in a radio in-studio session, so when they say this is their first time playing the song live, they’re not kidding. With rotating turns on vocals, an economical guitar solo, and glass-bottle percussion, it’s a supple, restrained cover, and that’s its quiet strength. Watch the video above while it lasts, and check out the full show on VH1 on November 21 at 9 p.m. EST.
