A morning lost

Fair warning: Niche music post ahead. Not for everyone. Sorry.
Let’s get straight into a cameo preamble. Come along if you want to…

I was up late. Football, as usual. But it worked out nicely, because our 13 year old son is away on a Scout course and only got to check his Whatsapps at half past midnight. We got to have a brief chat. He is still alive.

Anyway, I was up and about by 8:30 and running around the house doing jobs and then sat down to write a blog post (this one) and suddenly I somehow I ended up on this Youtube channel, watching this Youtube video:

It’s a metal cover of Dance Monkey – summer’s hot hit from Tones And I – and it’s really good. It’s about 5 minutes long and I enjoyed it a lot. And then it finished and there was a whole playlist of popular songs given the same treatment.

Adele’s Hello lends itself really well to this genre. Who knew?
Chandelier by Sia. Also fantastic.
Uptown Funk from Bruno Mars should have been a metal song all along.

Long story short, it’s now lunchtime and I’ve been through Let It GoLips Are Moving, Gangster’s Paradise and Toto’s Africa. Again (and again). An absolute rabbit hole of heavy nonsense.

So much good stuff. And a guy who is having a lot of fun, clearly enjoying what he is doing and not taking himself too seriously. It makes it even more listenable.

UPDATE: I’m still going…

OMG! Feel Good Inc… complete with video featuring a mall-wandering, guitar-playing, 6ft high, white rabbit.

As you do…
