Craig again forgot to put up the Musical Friday post that you might recall he promised last week (I have written evidence of it in the comments to last week's musical friday). So it falls to me to perform this neglected task.
Well, so, it happens that when I like a piece of music, I keep listening and listening and listening to it for weeks on end until the next thing I like comes around. So I am still listening to Sleepthief's The Dawnseeker again and again and again, but I already posted what parts of it were available on the Internet. However, some of the songs were covers of songs sung by other groups.
So without further ado, I present you the YouTube video of Duran Duran's original "The Chauffeur," performed live in surreal-o-vision:
And for my next number, this is the original "The Metro" by Berlin, which is actually a California group (not European as I said in my previous post).
And finally, "The Metro" again, except it's the System of a Down cover, so it's actually the screamy variety of heavy metal (I think). I'm not at all a fan of this particular genre, but I thought I'd present it for completeness.
Now, think of these discordant songs redone in an extremely harmonious and well-ordered electronica form with female voices only, and you have the awesomeness that is Sleepthief.
Edited to add: I got it in right under the midnight wire, so it's a valid Musical Friday post. Sweet!
