Cups - Pitch Perfect

Monday, April 15, 2013 14 Comments A+ a-

Do you know what the Cups is? Not the cup you use to drink water. It goes like this…
When I'm gone
When I'm gone
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
You're gonna miss me by my hair
You're gonna miss me everywhere, oh
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
You have probably heard this song before, or maybe have read the lyrics from your friend’s status. This is the song which Becca (played by Anna Kendrick) sung when she auditioned for the Barden Bellas in the movie, “Pitch Perfect”. It is a really good song if you’ll ask me. The song was accompanied by doing some routine with a (real) cup and the rest is history.

If you have watched the film, then you will be more interested in the Cups (Pitch Perfect’s When I’m Gone) Director’s Cut video that I’m going to show you. The setting in on a fast food and yes, they did the Cups, everyone did!


Here is the full lyrics of the Cups Song, if you want to jam with them.
I got my ticket for the long way run
Two bottle of whiskey for the way
And I sure would like some sweet company
And I'm leaving tomorrow, what'dya say

When I'm gone
When I'm gone
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

You're gonna miss me by my hair
You're gonna miss me everywhere, oh
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

I got my ticket for the long way run
The one with the prettiest of views
It's got mountains
It's got river's
It's got sights to give you shivers
But it sure would be prettier with you

When I'm gone
When I'm gone
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

You're gonna miss me by my walk
You're gonna miss me by my talk, oh
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

It's my first time to see this video! It looks Perfect! <3 I already watched the movie and all I can say is that it's an awesome movie. I didn't know that Anna Kendricks can sing though. Haha :)

I first heard the song from Pitch Perfect, but when I looked around YouTube for more Cups videos, I realized that the song had been around for a long time already. I also saw other covers of it but I'd never seen this Director's Cut before! Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed the video :D

Same here. Our whole class watched it and we were like very focus on watching and didn't dared to make a noise so we could hear everything clearly.

It was really awesome. Awe-inspiring. Though I thought Anna was just doing lipsync as well before.
