This past week, after one of the four days of Frankfurt’s music fair, Musikmesse, magic happened.
As I was browsing Facebook this Saturday morning, I came across a video of two girls playing music on a train that looked incredibly familiar and the caption said something about the guy who joined them…and so he did 2 minutes in.
You know what? Let’s get to the point! If you haven’t stumbled upon this, congrats! – you have a really great life offscreen!
While the Facebook version of this video had about 4 million views in the morning, by the end of the day it had reached 19m+! Not to mention the gazillion articles popping up all across Europe!
This MADE MY LIFE! Ok ok, my weekend…there wasn’t a person who crossed my path who wasn’t forced to hear about it and watch the video. But better yet, there wasn’t one who didn’t get as excited as yours truly!
It’s moments like this that I live for! A couple of years ago I was coming back from an incredible Pearl Jam concert in a packed train from Milton Keynes to London and these two dudes started chatting to me about the gig and asking if I liked it and all…they began asking me what my favourite bands were and, for each one, they sang a song (and really well!). It got to a point that the whole carriage joined in and sang along (minus voice-less me) and, at the end, as a joke (but not really), I said “Backstreet Boys“. Yep. They sang that too. With all of their hearts. Sadly, both my camera and phone batteries had long died…(for a good cause!).
