From the musical

Pitch Perfect

Music by Carter Family

"Cups" is a version of the 1931 Carter Family song "When I'm Gone", usually performed a cappella with a cup used to provide percussion, as in the cup game.[1] It was first performed this way in a YouTube video by Luisa Gerstein and Heloise Tunstall-Behrens as Lulu and The Lampshades[2] in 2009 (under the title "You're Gonna Miss Me"). Composition of the song is credited to A. P. Carter and Luisa Gerstein of Lulu and the Lampshades. The song became popular after it was performed by Anna Kendrick in the 2012 film Pitch Perfect.[6] That version also became the official theme song of the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup tournament.[7] The method is also used in the Rich Mullins song, "Screen Door.
