Is Anna Kendrick’s ‘Cups’ A Remake?
There is a catchy little song we play on KISS FM called ‘Cups’. It’s sung by one of the actresses from the ‘Twilight’ movies, Anna Kendrick. It’s taken a while for it to grow on me, and recently I found out, it’s a remake of an old song. A really, really old song!
Anna did the song for the movie ‘Pitch Perfect’, and it became a big hit with the ‘tween set who took to Youtube to mimic the way she, well, cupped, in the movie when she sang her song. Here’s Anna’s song:
When I first heard ‘Cups’ on KISS, I thought it sounded a little old-timey, and now I know why. Turns out, the song was recorded by The Carter Family, the same Carter Family that June Carter Cash, Johnny Cash’s wife, was a part of!
Here is an old recording of the original:
Pretty cool, huh? Seems nothing ever changes – we’ve been telling people how sorry they’re going to be when they lose us in song forever!
