Tweet the lyrics

March 25, 2013 § Leave a comment

I really don’t know how to explain this in a way that makes it justice so perhaps you should better visit tweetflight immediately. If you insist, though, here is my best try. Electro-folk (yes, this classification exists) group Brightly have released one of the most clever web-based music videos ever, for their song Preflight Nerves.

preflight nerves

 

It is basically a lyrics video, but the words of the song are drawn (almost) real-time from tweets. Clever huh?

Taking the words / phrases out of the context of the tweet and into the song and vice-versa is very interesting; sometimes poignant, sometimes ironic, sometimes hilarious.

I am dying to create a self-referential loop by tweeting about this and appearing in the video!
