Rufus Wainwright and Sean Lennon Cover Madonna at Occupy Wall Street

Songwriters perform wry cover of Madonna’s ‘Material Girl’

Sean Lennon and Rufus Wainwright teamed up for a wry rendition of Madonna's classic hit "Material Girl" at the Occupy Wall Street protest in Manhattan yesterday. The full performance is in this video clip, but be forewarned – it doesn't begin until around the nine minute mark. It's a cute cover and a welcome dose of humor at a protest that has occasionally brought out the dour side of visiting musicians.
