Les K sent this link over to me, and wrote, “Do we *really* need another “Call Me Maybe” video? Yes. Yes we do.”
He's right. No, don't go! Don't skip this! Seriously, would I lead you astray?
The NY Daily News reported:
Colin Britt and Arianne Abela arranged a full-on orchestral rendition of the song replete with glockenspiels, violas and violins.
“Like everyone, I have heard this song a lot for the entire summer,” Britt told the Daily News. “And I, like everyone—whether they want to admit it or not—have the guilty pleasure of enjoying it.”
Britt got an idea to record a version from the string riff that appears during each chorus … The arrangers sent invitations to classically trained musicians near New Haven, Conn. to perform a pop song, but didn't tell them the specific song until they arrived.
I thought this was so beautiful, the hair on my arms stood up on end.
Since Call Me Maybe was the big hit of the summer around here, I love how the melancholy beginning reflects the change of the seasons, as summer comes to an end.
I hope your weekend is full of talented people being wonderfully creative and experiencing familiar things in new ways.
