I happened upon this video when I visited… Ese’s Voice at http://esengasvoice.wordpress.com
I’m a fan of music…any kind, actually. I just have to feel good listening to it. And on some level, it needs to connect with who I am.
What captivated me about this particular music video was that it was a pop song performed by classical musicians. It’s been done before, but to a Taylor Swift tune?
I’m not a huge fan of Swift’s, although she is a phenomenon in that she writes her own music as if she were merely journaling. She’s a great storyteller for millions of broken-hearted teenage girls…having been there herself. Let’s see…how many times was that? I’m sure no one’s counting…except maybe the media and…Taylor Swift.
Hearing this classical version of Swift’s pop tune…Love Story…
seems to somehow legitimize the iconic singer with the middle-aged set. This is not meant to be uppity. In fact, Swift’s fans would most likely tune out my generation’s music.
The Piano Guys do a fine job of bridging the gap between the younger set…and those of us who have aged like fine wine.
…i’m more of a martini myself…make mine blue, please…
And now for the listening and viewing pleasure of my peers…
The Piano Guys are wonderful! And new to me. Thanks
So glad I passed along Ese’s discovery. “Share and share alike”‘s a good way to go. 🙂
The Piano Guys keep pleasantly surprise me – whenever I listen to something they have created, it always makes me smile.
Thank you for sharing their Charlie Brown Medley – haven’t heard it before! 🙂
Hugs for introducing The Piano Guys to the rest of us music lovers. Glad I could contribute by adding another of their great pieces. 🙂
