Music Reworked for Film, #2

The cover of Black Sheep by the band Metric is really quite something. In addition to building a scene around the song, the actress who replaces the original vocals does a fantastic job giving a performance. I would argue that she does a better job than the original singer.

To be fair she has Edgar Wright behind her whereas the band most likely has little more than a stationary camera to capture their performances. That being said it really is something that they chose to bring in an actress to pass off this song as her own.

It’s fantastic for the film but I can’t help wonder if the members of Metric were giving one another sideways glances after this.
