Ben Howard covers Call Me Maybe

Ben Howard, “Call Me Maybe”

Radio 1 Live Lounge Performance

English singer-songwriter Ben Howard may battle to keep a straight face at times during his rendition of the Carly Rae Jepsen smash, but he nevertheless turns the pop stunner into something that most hipsters wouldn’t shy away from.

Hanging behind the shimmery backing of the cello and cymbals, Howard croons through the verse before twisting the originally inane bridge into an indie mood jam.
