Elevator Music

Here is my long overdue initial contribution to the Noise Narcs community.

When I was growing up my mom insisted on my brother and me taking piano lessons, and when I was about 12 I quit to focus on my athletic career. This turned out to be a mistake, as I have yet to impress any girls with my baseball or basketball skills. I imagine I might be able to woo them if I could sit down at a piano and play something romantic, like some Chopin, Beethoven, or the piano version of Sisqo’s opus “The Thong Song.”

I stumbled across this amazing video of Arcade Fire playing the title-track from their 2007 album Neon Bible while in an elevator, and if my mom would have just had the foresight to make me take magazine playing lessons, I probably would never have quit, and I would be an acclaimed musician who had the ability to impress the ladies.

    This really is awesome. Not sure you could play the magazine with your sense of rhythm though…

    I can specifically remember being in a middle school music class when the teacher asked me to play the tambourine and instantly regretted it.
