Watch Portugal. The Man Cover Gnarls Barkley On French TV

    Portugal. The Man were asked by French television station Taratata to pick a song to cover live. Interestingly, the band chose to channel Cee-Lo and Danger Mouse‘s 2006 Gnarls Barkley hit, “Crazy.” They strip the song of any smoothness and inject plenty of distortion. The music squeals more than the original, but singer John Gourley’s voice maintains its inherent creepiness. Portugal’s version sounds fuller than its predecessor, but that’s because it doesn’t get much more minimal than Barkely’s initial backdrop and Cee-Lo’s ghostly falsetto.
