My friend Wendy added today’s Power Song to her Facebook page this morning, having no idea that it would be grabbed by me immediately. Today’s PS not only captured my imagination, but it grabbed me by all my senses and didn’t let go.
Wendy’s Facebook introduction expresses our Power Song perfectly: “Consider this your caffeine for the morning.”
Today’s Power Song is 2Cellos cover of Thunderstruck by AC/DC.
If you have not heard of the Croatian duo of Luca Suluc and Stejpan Hauser, you should check them out. They’ve got a true musical gift, and aren’t that bad to look at either (Just saying…).
2CELLOS rose to fame in 2011 when their version of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” took the world by storm. The YouTube video became a massive viral sensation leading to a record deal with Sony Masterworks and an invitation to join Sir Elton John on his worldwide tour. – from their Bio on 2Cellos.com.
I love true musicians and 2Cellos are just that. Having played Clarinet throughout my young life until I went off to college, I know the true commitment and artistry it takes to play an instrument even “borderline” well. These young men are the epitome of artists.
The duo ROCKS OUT to Thunderstruck, complete with a fitting Angus Young style tribute.
At the end of the video, their audience was dumbfounded and as for me, I added their latest album CelloVerse to my Apple Music playlist and am listening to it as I write.
Consider this your caffeine!
