Now this one is the kind of absolute delight we all need right now. Despite it scarring all of us in childhood, The Neverending Story is one of the most beloved children's movies of all time. And we all know and love that theme song that has spent years lodged in our brains. Enter DeVotchKa. The gypsy punk/dark cabaret band has teamed with modern country queen Amanda Shires for a remotely recorded cover of the theme song. For good measure they even bring in Tami Stronach, the Childlike Empress from the film, and her daughter for the song. This cover has brought me a ridiculous amount of happiness since I stumbled upon it late last week, and I can't imagine you won't feel the same way.
You can watch the video for DeVotchKa and Amanda Shires's cover of "The Neverending Story" below. All proceeds from the song will benefit MusiCares. For more on DeVotchka, check out their website (where you can also purchase the song on vinyl). For more on Amanda Shires, check out hers.
