Coldplay’s song ‘Paradise’ is one of my favourite songs…ever. I fell in love with it when I saw it being performed at a glowing light concert and since then, it has been my JAM. I mean you can’t dance to it but my god is it perfect for when you are lying down, headphones on and drowning out the world!
Anyhow, I stumbled across some peeps on Youtube who call themselves ‘ThePianoGuys’. They are quite simply, amazing. They play music effortlessly and you can feel their passion through the screen. It is extremely infectious! Moreover, these lovely people did an African cover of ‘Paradise’ and it sounds like music heaven.
As soon as they started playing, I found myself grinning like an idiot. My eardrums did a standing ovation at the instrument change at 0:57. I got chills by the end. Don’t just take my word for it. Join 14.5 million other people and listen to it yourselves:
Also the location of the music video is stunning! They actually got a helicopter to airlift a brand new grand piano up there. There also has to be a notable mention for the guy’s cool matrix trench coat. He is totally working it.
If you want to hear more from ThePianoGuys, I definitely recommend their cover of the Lord of the Rings soundtrack. They were so good, I felt like I could visualise the scenes in my mind as they played.
Over and Out y’all!
