My new favorite thing

I know this video has been making the rounds on the internet; unfortunately once I stopped using Twitter I lost that connection to the meme-of-the-day. It’s the only thing I miss, and sometimes I don’t even miss that. Anyway, here’s an amazing cover of “My Favorite Things” from the Rogers and Hammerstein musical The Sound of Music.
I can’t even begin to express how impressed I am (not that they care) with this cover. I love how they change the chord progressions entirely, but preserve the harmonic function. Also, the production value that they extract from a condenser mike, a camera and a laptop is impressive, and if anybody had any doubts about the democratizing potential of home recording studios, here’s proof that it is a positive thing for capital-m Music. Also, Nataly Dawn has a refined and enchanting beauty (not that it should matter, but I thought it was worth mentioning).
