Wicked Games; The story of how one cool video on the interweb led me to find another; a.k.a. the longest post title I’ve put on this blog

This video has long been a favorite of mine since initially watching it live on America’s Got Talent. Not only was this the single most talented musical group I’ve ever seen on the show, but it is one of the most ephemerally pleasant-sounding ensembles I have heard in years.

The fact that this dude has risen to a level of international renown through posting original music on YouTube is nothing short of phenomenal.

But seriously, I would describe The Weeknd’s music as a modern, emotional blend between City and Colour (pick a vid of your choosing) and Michael Jackson. Kind of like this:

Thank you, interweb.
