I like these posts and all, but could we keep them to only 1 thread? I know /media/ isn't all that active but even so I feel that pushing things to the next page with threads with similar (for not saying "the same") content does more harm than good (it's also in the rules).
Now, as for the videos:>>1387>WATCH THE WHOLE THING
I couldn't, it's absolute shit.
As for what went wrong, well, pop. The song is basically something with a catchy rhythm but with poorly-executed lyrics, plus shitty vocals. The singers feel too generic. I couldn't feel anything from their singing; and don't get my wrong, I like some artists who only have good intonation even though their voice isn't all that… "special", but these guys get killed with the extremely shitty and dead lyrics and their "oh look another of those voices that sound all the same".
The difference between them and Bach is basically that Bach DID know that a song has a theme behind it, something to bring it to life, something with emotion. In Johannes-Passion he overlapped the theme of Jesus' suffering with an exquisite composition of strings and a chorus ranging from tenors to sopranos, which we commonly associate with sophisticated, "holy", choruses thanks to opera and sermon music, and which does actually feel "from the heavens". But OP? Nah, some catchy pop thing with generic lyrics.
