Ever since I first saw the original music video for this song, it has been one of my favorite songs. It gets played at least once a day in my household. If you have never heard the song, I suggest you go on to youtube and watch the music video by Swedish House Mafia. The video makes the song 10 times better, which I didn’t even know was possible.
Anyway, I stumbled across this young talent, by the name of DSharp, who is a violinist, and a magnificent one at that. He covers a lot of popular songs, that you can listen to on his youtube channel titled: IAmDSharp. I suggest you go listen to the rest of them.
I don’t use this word often, but when I do, I firmly believe it is necessary; this song (the cover) is magnificent. As he plays the vocals on his violin, I can almost here the words from the original. I also respect the fact that he kept the drop in the song, since it is the best part of the original song. Everything about this screams talent, and I wish more people did performances similar to this. Everyone sings cover songs, or plays the guitar, which is awesome, but a little violin can go a long way. To me, the violin is one of the most pleasant instruments to the ear (Assuming the musician is talented).
Sometimes I wish I would have played the violin when I was forced into band/orchestra in elementary school. Maybe I would have stuck with it, but I was young and naive and decided to pick an easy instrument and move on with my life. Oh well, no regrets, right?
