I'd agree and say that the long way is better, not only because that was what I was taught (from Norway). They say it all in this video - the naming in the short system is hideous.
That being said, I'd gladly follow if the rest of the world suddenly wanted to use the short system. As long as the same system is being used in the whole world, wel'll understand each other.
I'm from Norway, and I can tell you that Buckley got it right this time too. I don't usually watch the Ylvis show, but I've heard about it from commercials. I didn't hear about the song before the internet was flooded with it.
My impression of the show is that it tries to be funny without always succeeding, though I get in a good mood from it. It's a talkshow mixed with comedy, a type that's been getting a lot of attention in here lately. Some jokes, skits etc. with guests throughout the show.
I wouldn't think so, as Beethoven himself died in 1827. The technology needed to record sound wasn't invented yet. This is probably a modern recording using a copy of the sheet music of the Moonlight Sonata as guidance. But yes, regardless of who the pianist is, this is what Beethoven wrote about 200 years ago.
love this. cool voice............
aaargh its good in its own way..the voice really suits the song
I love it! It was almost hypnotizing.
keep in mind that the welfare system is more developed in europe.. means the government paid
i guess thats something theyve agreed on universally.. as long as they play the correct rhytms when they play the song i dont think the counting in the beginning matters much
but i can see what you mean, i reacted to that at first when he counted 4/4 before the song with the 6/8+7/8 bar xD
I laughed when you said "Our trash and chibulation"... it was a very cool sentence. Yes, I know you know you had some mistakes in the lyrics, but it was kinda funny anyway.
I think your voice is more like a blend of Matt's and Chris' voice during the verses and more like Matt's during the choruses. Now I've heard Chris' voice too, you know.
Do what you do best :)
Now I just need a full live-version of this, Shine and Spiral Static and I'm ready to die a happy man. I can just hope they play the small minute of Host in Oslo 5th of December...
