Watch: David Byrne breaks out Prince’s ‘When Doves Cry’ at Portland karaoke bar

Looks like David Byrne got into town a little early ahead of his concert in Portland, Ore., so he popped into the Alibi Tiki Lounge late Saturday night to do a little karaoke. His selection? Prince’s incomparable 1984 smash “When Doves Cry,” which you can watch below.

As talkheadtalk wrote, “david byrne just casually doing prince at karaoke last night NBD.”

Byrne — who, of course, is no stranger to karaoke — performed Sunday night in Portland, and his massive world tour tour for new album American Utopia continues tonight in Eugene, Ore.

    I get it, David Byrne, but considering the Dove’s Cry a lot longer for black families and other people of color in the Portland area who are not represented given public policy, let’s honor Prince in a way that does not exploit his message but empowers his message. Thank you!

  2. jezabel starfox, what kind of nonsense comment is that?

  3. I’ve read the first comment three times and I still can’t make sense of it.
