The History Of Lyrics That Aren’t Lyrics
Singing along with songs is fun. And it’s a lot easier when you don’t have real lyrics to remember. This is a simple tribute to classic “la-dah-dee-dah” moments from the last five decades of pop music, including the Beatles, Billy Joel, Michael Jackson and Pink, performed by Jane Lui, Michael T. and Jonathan Batiste. It’s also the first video on the Collective Cadenza YouTube channel, which director Joe Sabia says via email will be “a new big experiment where I’m teaming up with Juilliard students and alums to do conceptual, thought-provoking music videos.” I’m pretty jazzed (sorry) to see what’s next.
