Music Monday: 'GOODBYE HMV' - A Tribute to HMV (Parody of Elton John 'CANDLE IN THE WIND'

                   

Last week I chanced upon (briefly) on the news that British retail giant HMV was going to face the music and went under administration. Soon #HMV was trending in Twitter world.  Hopefully, a middle ground could be found and jobs are kept. Veritably talented, Mark Read of a1 wrote quite succinctly what's been happening with the changing times. Hope this vid shows up before it's taken down.

I thought I take a different route this Monday and feature this one. It was cleverly put together in a given short of time.

  5. Hey Raine,

    I'm not familiar with the HMV label. *blush* Shoot, I've forgotten who many of the recording companies are anymore, if the truth were known. It's not that I'm a big streamer because I am not. We haven't bought vinyl records in decades, but we do prefer CDs over streaming any day. I don't want to see CDs pushed off the market because of the digital frinzy. But, anywho this parody is really hilarious and like Jackie said, this guy has a fab voice - nice sound!

    Thanks for visiting my little niche Cathy Kennedy's Blog yesterday and I hope you'll link up for next week's round of Monday's Music Moves Me.

    Have a melodious day!

    Now following ya,
    Cathy

    1. Hi Cathy! I also prefer getting a physical CD because it makes for a lasting stamp to a job well done sealed with an accomplished vibe. :D Hope you'll have a chance to check out the group he belongs to, a1 at http://www.a1official.com/ I'll see what I can think of for Monday's Music Moves Me. :D Thanks!

      Have a wonderful week too! Followed you back. :D
