Gotye – Somebodies: A YouTube Orchestra

They say imitation is the best form of flattery. One person who knows that well it seems is Gotye. With the astounding number of YouTube parodies and covers of his song, Gotye creates his own remix. Using ALL of the videos on YouTube.

He says: “Reluctant as I am to add to the mountain of interpretations of ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ seemingly taking over their own area of the Internet, I couldn’t resist the massive remixability that such a large, varied yet connected bundle of source material offered.

This is as good as the original song if not better. Coming from the artist himself.



Hans Zimmer – Dark Knight Live

I LOVE this movie! It is very hard for me to choose between this and Inception. Apart from Nolan, the other obviously common string between the two is the background score by Hans Zimmer. Here goes for all the Dark Knight fans!

Coldplaying for the fans

I have written earlier about Coldplay; here and one in my old blog – here.

I still can’t stop talking about them. I just love them too much for too many reasons. Again, I don’t know how many are aware, but Coldplay is one of the few bands who are doing their bit for the environment as well. They realise that their live shows cause damage to the environment and they buy Carbon Offsets to try and reduce the damage. How can you not like a band like this one?

Apart from this, they made an awesome gesture recently by giving their latest album for free on their site. You can download the album Left Right Left Right Left here if you have already not done it. So what if the album is a recording of their Live Performance? It is still a great gesture.

About the album, I love the performances. The songs seem so different even though they are the same! The start to Clocks is awesome. The band knows that this is one of their most popular songs and were brilliant in playing it to the audience. Especially the ending of the song was a brilliant surprise. The same goes for Fix You. However, I have never loved Viva La Vida so much before. It just sounds SO much better in this album. All the songs are great like always, but these are the songs that stand out. When you have decided why you like a particular song, it just feels great when the band betters those reasons. Don’t know if I am making sense, but I love them too much.

Need more reasons to love Top Gear?

I don’t know how many people know about this, maybe many do, but Top Gear uses almost FIFTY audio tracks on an average for ONE episode!

This goes to show the extent to which they go, just to make it that much better. A single piece of video (a car test or a task) uses almost fifteen tracks, some for just a few seconds. If there is any particular track you heard in an episode and wondered where it came from, you can check it up here –

Not that I needed this reason, but I can’t help but love it even more now (if that is possible)!

I have said it a lot of times, this show is not just about cars. Itis about british comedy, awesome locales, brilliant film making, superbmusic and while they are at it, they talk about absolutely breathtakingcars as well. Now THIS is complete entertainment!

It does matter that each of their songs are unique to their fan.
