In the spirit of chilling, bare-bones performances and stars being actual fans on their peers, Ryan Adams has been posting his own slightly tortured versions of popular Vampire Weekend tracks to his Facebook page. (So it does pay off to friend celebrities on the 'book?) The superfan shared his video of "Mansard Roof" with his many virtual friends on Tuesday, accompanied by a properly self-deprecating description: "Track One; 'Mansard Roof' Vampire Weekend cover. I do it no justice but I love it. I sung it imagining being on a beach made of diamonds with a darkened night sky full of twinkling sand." The VW love bus rolled on today, with Adams' take on "Oxford Comma," the usually jubilant, perfect-for-an-outdoor-party music that Adams himself feels humanity depends on, even if he'd rather sing it a lot more quietly ("I am a superfan so forgive me. Had to edit the arrangement to make it work. Bye."). Now Cheryl Cole just needs to cover Ryan Adams and the cycle will be complete.
Enjoy these heavy and heartfelt versions by Adams, below.
