It's nice to share

I've been enjoying the video below, partly because it's cool and partly because it's slightly absurd, in an enjoyable sense. It's the answer to the question "what if a whole band could only afford one instrument.

The song is by Gotye and the original song and video are below. Also good, but I like the edge and creativity of the cover a bit more.

Perhaps not appropriate tunes for the day, but meh. Enjoy.

    I'm sure one day I'll be sick of this song, but for now it's still impossibly catchy, and I'll probably watch both videos back to back.

    Very clever and technically very good, but there's not the least hint that any of them are having any fun with their accomplishment. Compare this piece with four hands playing one guitar:

  • Excellent choice with Gotye ... his music is amazing ... this is the other one I absolutely love: http://youtu.be/oyVJsg0XIIk

    My four year old nephew loves this video, and while we were watching it I mulled over what the paint might represent and he piped up "no, it's because they aren't married anymore".
    Astute little jedi.

    That song is technically impressive (both versions) and catchy but it could be the saddest song I've ever heard. I'm going to seek out other music by this artist but there isn't any way I could listen to that song very often.

    Wow.
