So the other evening (actually it was so late it was now morning) I was reading The Undead Thread over at the SL Forums, as is normal for me, and a round of who can post the most/best youtube links started (always a lot of fun). I usually discover, or rediscover a couple of great new music loves from these rounds, and this time was no different. Not only have I found that I love BB King, but I've shared my latest earworms (Billy Rae Cyrus - Achy Breaky Heart and Elton John - Bennie & The Jets) with others :-p
Joshooah posted a couple of really cool songs, one of them being a cover of that great MJ hit "Beat It"...
Now normally, I'm not a fan of MJ covers. I never think they're done quite as good as the original, but this version just caught me straight away and got me dancing along. I really love the way its a VideoSong too. I had a look at the group's youtube channel. Wowzers!
Pomplamoose is their name. A two person group - Nataly Dawn and Jack Conte, based near San Francisco, California. They have a lot of videos up, and I've barely touched them, but Nataly's voice is fantastic! I love this style of music. Go and check them out on youtube, or myspace (which has a bunch of great mp3s to download - free!). They have a twitter too - which I am now following.
I just wanted to share them with you, and to send a HUGE thanks to Josh for sharing them. The first song below is the one on their youtube profile and has become my favourite song - its an earworm which I don't want gone! How strange lol. The last one is a cover of Nat King Cole - who I also love, and I adore this cover too.
Hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Love ya!
