Watch Miley Cyrus’ spooky version of Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here

Pop star Miley Cyrus has performed an eerie version of Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here for the American comedy show Saturday Night Live.

The singer was accompanied for former California Breed guitarist Andrew Watt, the man behind Ozzy Osbourne‘s recent Ordinary Man album. Watt was performing after recovering from COVID-19, having tested positive last month.

At the time he wrote, “I can’t stress this enough: This is not a joke. Stay inside, stay sanitised. Please stop everything and take care of yourselves and the people you love around you, until we are all through this.

“To have the mentality, ‘I’m young this can’t affect me’ is just straight up stupid and so dangerous to everyone around you. Social distancing is to protect someone’s mom and dad, someone’s grandmother… it’s not about you. It’s about everyone together fighting this as a team. Stay safe. Now more than ever.”

Cyrus performed the song on the second “At Home” edition of SNL, with cast members and guests appearing under lockdown conditions. Cyrus appeared lit by firelight from her backyard.

Last summer Cyrus grabbed headlines for covering Metallica and Nine Inch Nails at the Glastonbury festival, before going on to perform versions of Led Zeppelin’s Black Dog and Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb at the iHeartRadio festival in Las Vegas.

  1. Dear JP Cartwright,
    Please stop sending me this trivial lowest common denominator nonsense. I’m only interested in the vinyl records, and definitely not this. The amount of crap you people are sending out everyday these days is really beginning to piss me off, me and also a few friends who also buy from you. Grow up, please!

  2. Andrew – Thanks for your comment. Good or bad feedback always welcome. And I would agree this post is a little “off piste” for us – What type of content would you like to read more of?

  3. Robert – Thanks for responding.
    In a perfect world I’d like the person who thought that “performance” by Cyrus to be any good at all and worthy of my attention to be placed in stocks so that I may throw tomatoes at them. Her guitarist couldn’t even play it anywhere near properly. It was an unmitigated disaster.
    Other than that, I’m just fine with the flag-ups on vinyl records and news items related to the sort of records that eil.com specialise in – such as some David Bowie information content that you have sent out which is most welcome. You know what I mean here.

We want your comments please!
