John Legend & The Roots cover Arcade Fire

I was just about to get out of my car earlier this afternoon when I heard this song come on WXPN.  As soon as I heard David Dye say "John Legend & The Roots covering Wake Up by The Arcade Fire" I closed the car door, cranked up the radio, and jammed out for the next 6 minutes.  It's just an incredible cover, preserving the originals melody & theme while putting a touch of John's soul and The Roots funk onto it.  The breakdown/jam towards the end is as funky as it is beautiful.
