Aqua's "Barbie Girl" gone cello classical

[Aqua, 1997 Single "Barbie Girl"]

I've been a little slow on my commentary and in depth articles. To substitute, a brief mention of a fun video for those classical musicians who dare not listen to pop. Although a month old, the latest video to hit up some interest on social networking sites comes this one off of the MySpace video sharing site.

It's the late 1990's Norwegian-Danish pop band Aqua with "Barbie Girl" , only in a classical tradition. And a one, two, three, four, sets the beat of the lead cellist as all four of them grind away. When that song originally came out, I couldn't stand that annoying high pitch voice and bubblgum dance but strangely enough, that classical rendition wasn't too bad.

Nice blog! Thanks to Jason Heath for the link.

It's fascinating to see what goes on behind the scenes.

I really like your photos of the workshop and the work in progress.

Keep it up.
