Strokes, Jarvis Cocker Cover Cars – “Just What I Needed”

Leeds and Reading Festival co-headliners the Strokes and Pulp surprised fans over the weekend by joining forces for an impressively faithful take on the Cars’ 1978 hit “Just What I Needed.” Watch above, as Julian Casablancas introduces Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker before the pair trade vocals on the catchy tune. While the boys kept the take on the fun and playful side, look out for the nearly pitch-perfect instrumental side of the rendition, which has me wondering if there’s a recorded version in the can or in the works.
