Cover Me In Music

Dear Maxence Cyrin,

This morning I woke up with grandiose plans of cleaning my whole apartment, making three pieces of artwork, finishing that boring New Yorker article about Keynesian economics (I’m sorry, sometimes economics makes my eyes glaze over), and going to the gym for 7 hours. But then I came across your cover of Where Is My Mind by the Pixies and I couldn’t stop listening to your songs. So now here I am, stuck inside on this gorgeous, clear Autumn day in Los Angeles. Listening to the most beautiful music in the world. It’s the perfect combination of high-brow, dramatic piano and mid-brow pop music. Hearing the piano version made me love all these songs even more, including Beyonce’s Crazy In Love, which I must admit I didn’t even like before. Here are a delightful collection of songs, some of which have delightful vintage music videos.

The Pixies “Where Is My Mind”

Justice “D.A.N.C.E.”

Arcade Fire “No Cars Go”

Beyonce “Crazy In Love”

Foster The People “Pumped Up Kicks”

Nirvana “Lithium”

You can hear more music at Maxence Cyrin’s Youtube and Myspace pages. (Sidenote: every time I am reminded Myspace still exists my brain explodes. Which kind of makes me wish it would just go out of business. Because having your brain explode repeatedly is rather annoying).

Love,
Orlando

    Love these tunes! So much easier to choke down than hearing the originals beat up on the radio. (but, p.s. Pumped up Kicks is Foster the People.) (also LOVED the Orb-lando!)

  2. This is the most wonderful sound ever. Thank you for being its ambassador.
