“Mario Kart Love Song” by Sam Hart

December 7, 2008

At first glance, I figured this would have some funny lyrics, but would be musically quite weak.  I was pleasantly surprised by the music.  The artist, Sam Hart, crafts a very nice song about Mario Kart, one of my favorite video games.

You can check out more of Sam’s videos at his YouTube channel.

Thanks to Erik

“One Semester of Spanish”-a love song

Funny.  Sent in by Marta, a proud Puerto-Rican woman, whose keen mind would not only see through a clown like this, but also leave him crying in both english and spanish.

“Skinny Love” by Bon Iver

November 3, 2008

A performance of “Skinny Love” from the album For Emma, Forever Ago by Bon Iver, the performance name of Justin Vernon. Vernon wrote the album while retreating into the northwestern Wisconsin wilderness following the breakup of his long-time band. Give For Emma, Forever Ago a listen to. It’s a rare album in many ways, but particularly in its cohesiveness. You might find yourself hoping Bon Iver suffers another personal or professional setback so he’ll again produce a beautiful record like this one. You don’t need to feel guilty if that’s the case.

Ck. out more at Bon Iver’s official website or his MySpace page.

Pretty Feist-like. Nice folk-pop with a simple yet interesting video. I like the indie-film feel of it. Check out more at her official website.

September 16, 2008

Classic song.  The short, about a cowboy robot was directed by Aaron Augenblick with animation by David Vandervoort.  I wonder what Hank would think about this?  I think it works.
