Best Cover St. Louis 2009 - "Crazy on You"

Heart's dynamic performance at the Illinois State Fair in August proved that the act hasn't lost a vocal step, even after decades together. Equally, uh, heartening was a cameo cover performed by Shara Worden and Becky Stark during orchestral-indie-rockers the Decemberists' sold-out Pageant show this past spring. The two ladies — who as solo artists record under the names My Brightest Diamond (Worden) and Lavender Diamond (Stark) — echoed the powerful pipes of Heart principals Ann and Nancy Wilson for a stunning "Crazy on You." Worden stalked the stage like a cougar on the prowl, her PJ Harvey-meets-Robert Plant voice hitting the high notes with the grace of a trapeze artist, while Stark's movements and wails resembled those of a docile gazelle. The delighted crowd whooped and cheered as the song progressed — and went positively bananas when the pair finally harmonized at the tune's denouement, their voices combining with the sheer force of a hurricane.

My Voice Nation Help

They performed this song in two out of the three shows I've seen this tour. Both times they rocked the crowd!! Everyone went crazy! Videos are available on youtube, but I really hope they record this cover before going their separate ways at the end of the tour.
