I do love me some good Boogie Woogie.

Performed live at Joe’s Pub.

Dueling Pianos Competition Scene

This is the best clip in the movie “Scott Joplin” (1977) by Universal Studios. It depicts a competition between “professors” (brothel pianists) to win $100 from John Stark in Sedalia, Missouri. Louis Chauvin, who is a better pianist but can’t read/write music, teams up with Joplin (played by Billy Dee Williams) and unleashes Maple Leaf Rag upon the public for the first time.

Puddles and Bigfoot team up at the cafe to cover the Imagine Dragons hit.

One of Puddles’ alter egos, Big Mike Geier, specializes in covering The King.

YouTuber and rising star Liza Koshy LOVES her some Dollar Store action.

 

I love the visual enhancements.

Using 12 cameras and data visualization, this project animated Sir Simon Rattle’s baton flicks at 120 frames per second. What if we could capture what music looks like? Not just how it sounds, but how it moves? Digital artist Tobias Gremmler did just that. Using motion capture to track the movements of London Symphony Orchestra conductor Sir Simon Rattle, he created this hypnotic video. As Rattle’s arms rise and his body sways, each movement is tracked and animated, creating sweeping patterns of light.

I love this Bob’s Big Boy / Elvis mashup!

“Algerian Rhapsody”

Apparently, many comparisons have been drawn between Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and Albert Camus’ “The Stranger.” Someone finally took the next step and mashed them together in a video.

“Critics, both journalistic and academic, have speculated over the meaning behind the song’s lyrics. Some believe the lyrics describe a suicidal murderer hunted by demons or depict events just preceding an execution. The only thing we borrowed was the instrumental track.The latter explanation points to Albert Camus’s novel The Stranger, in which a young man confesses to an impulsive murder and has an epiphany before he is executed, as probable inspiration.” -Wikipedia
