Love Story/Viva La Vida

After much talk of Taylor Swift's song among my SILs and BILs, I couldn't help but check this out. It is AMAZING. Jon Schmidt took the two songs (Love Story and Viva La Vida) and put the similar themes together in a GORGEOUS piano-cello duet. I already play piano but now I want to play more like he does and I've always wanted to play the cello and this feeds that interest, too. Gorgeous. Enjoy!

Have you seen August Rush? I really liked parts of that movie (I could've done without Robin Williams' entire character) but the cello music was amazing. I wish they would have had more cello without mixing in the rock music, but it was still seriously cool.

Haven't seen August Rush yet. That song by Kris on Idol made me want to see Once, too. I love Cello. And I LOVE when rock songs have strings as part of the music. LOVE it.
