Friday afternoon music

I stumbled upon this video today, at Rockstar Diaries, and it was just what I needed to snap out of the grump I have been in. It happens to combine two of my favourite tracks that have recently been in the popular charts (as we called them growing up) and is one of those swooping intstrumental pieces that makes your hairs stand on end.

This piece of music was created by musician Jon Schmidt when his daughter asked him to include her favourite song "Love Story" by Taylor Swift on his next album.

"I did a slight rhythm variation on Taylor Swift's melody, [and] it turned into the exact rhythm of the Coldplay song," Schmidt said. As a result he mixed the two, and after spending 100 hours working on it posted it on YouTube to see what people though.

A million views later, it is now the second highest rated song on YouTube.

Coldplay's attorney has already given permission for him to use it on the next album, and he says Taylor Swift's attorneys are close to doing the same.


  1. Oh that is so lovely! I have goosebumps now. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks Laura. I have been listening on repeat all weekend.
