You have not known what you are.
You have slumbered upon yourself all your life.
Your eyes have been as much as closed most of the time.
What you have done is already in mockeries.

The mockeries are not you.
Underneath them
And within them,
I see you lurk...

-Walt Whitman


fresh twist of the new year anthem

Katy Perry's Firework...

Yeah, right? It's a very cool, melodic and inspirational song and is very much in tune with the new year. It's been on radio, the television, internet, and in almost all media invented by modern technology, playing in an endless loop to the point that it eventually became almost intolerable to listen to. And then Tyler Ward and Alex Goot put their heads together and decided, "Let's make a laid back version of this hit and give it a fresh twist without using any firework whatsoever bursting out of our chests. You Tube will do the rest."

With 1, 398, 777 views, their rendition is I think better than the original, currently on loop in my MP3 player enjoying till I get annoyed listening to it.

Tyler Ward's facial expression in this music video is really annoying though.

I've shared their version on facebook many many times! Loved it more than Katy Perry's.

I converted the video to mp3 just to avoid Tyler Ward's annoying facial expression!

Abou: Galing noh?

aka Procne: Haha! That's exactly what I did too. I like Alex's "Goot" music. :)

I'm a big Goot fan! His covers are amaaaazing.

Tyler Ward, not so much.

lucas said...

Me too!

Tyler Ward is annoying with his ridiculous facial expression when he sings...
