It’s a two person band, Jack & Natalie, and they have recorded many songs, most of which you can see on youtube. There are several that I love . . . “Mr. Sandman”, “Beat it”, “September”. . . but one song in particular has become a favorite and it’s “Lady Gaga’s Telephone”. As a musician, I am completely blown away by their creativity and ability to combine an old time organ sound, with a kids piano and xylophone along with an array of other instruments and somehow make it all work! Plus the vocals are spot on . . . tight harmony. . . fabulous! And, rest assured, it’s not just all smoke and mirrors and trick photography. According to Jack, he says that their videos mostly take the form of “VideoSongs”, a medium he defines with two rules:
- What you see is what you hear. (No lip-syncing for instruments or voice)
- If you hear it, at some point you see it. (No hidden sounds)
So, whether you’ve had a “Monday” or just want to watch some amazing musicians perform, this youtube video is sure to make you smile. Enjoy!
