Well, (since no one else has said it) these guys did get a nod when they guest starred, playing that very song, on Glee last year. I know it's not exactly mainstream, and all but at least it's a step in the right direction, bringing actual talent out where the general population can both see and enjoy it. The creators of Glee even recreated their video there when they performed.
Wow, this just made my day. Thank you for sharing the link. ^_^ I really love when a song is done in a different style, like when a pop song is re-done in metal, or when 12 Girls Band redid Clocks by Coldplay with classic Chinese instruments. It really gives a new perspective on the song and it's strangely one of my favourite things to find in music.
So once again, thanks for sharing, I really loved this. <3
Because talent is over-rated. I know some amazing artists who are going no where with their skills. It's all a matter of how hard you work and how much you want to succeed and be known. I'm pretty sure everyone stopped reading this by now, but I'm serious. My brother went to a prestigious art high-school and got into college with a full ride until he gave up. He's 24 now, married, in the most expensive place to live in the world. Basil, Switzerland. Also the best place in the world be be seen as an artist. And yet he has lost himself for the sake of success. There are too many lost artists in this world.
How do you mean 'lost', if you don't mind my asking? I can't tell from your post whether you mean your brother is a skilled artist who could succeed but hasn't because he lost his drive and stopped working hard, or that your brother is a successful artist but had to give up on what he really wanted in order to achieve that.
It's quite disheartening that nowadays, all you need to do to make money in the music industry is get either fully or part naked. What happened to the times when the music industry actually used music?
Cause nobody wants to bother with real talent nowadays. It's all about who can put out the most albums or works in the least amount of time. Christ I miss when music was good. I miss real music from before 98'
Amazing! Must say though, bein' a rocker and all, that I prefer Welcome to the Jungle and Highway to Hell. Really awesome, goes to show that we're not done creatin' music, there are many more combinations we've not thought of before. Love it!
