The Legend of Zelda violin girl that brought a crooked little smile this NerdBastards face, then set his heart beating to the rhythm of the beautiful music she coaxed out of that magical violin, has taken on the Skyrim theme.
Lindsey Sterling (Zelda Violin girl) found that she needed a hand to complete this video and found it in the voice of Peter Hollens. Together they brought their combined musical talents to bear on the Skyrim theme using ONLY Peter’s voice and Lindsey’s violin to create 120 tracks to combine into this fantastic video.
Devin Graham also deserves a shout out for the cinematography and location shots that really take this video to a higher level than the usual YouTube posts.
John Barrowman, known to many as Captain Jack Harkness from Doctor Who and Torchwood, is one talented fella. He can do the action thing, y’know, firing big guns and jumping from explosions, but he’s also a talented stage performer, a great dancer and one hell of a singer. Why nobody’s booked him and Hugh Jackman for a movie where they sing, dance and kick ass is beyond me.
During a live concert in January of 2010 Barrowman sang the 70s theme songs to Spider-Man and Wonder Woman, complete with costumed back up dancers. It’s an internet gem for sure. At times the sound becomes a little glitchy, but it’s definitely worth a watch. And seriously, how can we get Barrowman and Jackman’s agents talking? Action-musicals could be a whole new thing.
Life is like a hurricane
Here in Duckburg
Race cars, lasers, aeroplanes
It’s a duck-blur
Might solve a mystery
Or rewrite history
DuckTales (oooh ooooh)
Every day they’re out there making
DuckTales (oooh ooooh)
Tales of daring do bad and good
LuckTales (oooh ooooh)
When it seems they’re heading for the
Cool deduction never fails
That’s for certain
The worst of messes
D-D-D-Danger! Watch behind you
There’s a stranger out to find you
What to do? Just grab on to some DuckTales
Not pony tales or cotton tales, no
DuckTales (ooh ooooh)
Yes, those immortal words belong to the beloved 90’s Disney animated series “DuckTales”, which followed the adventures of the richest duck in Duckburg Scrooge McDuck and his 3 nephews Huey, Duey and Luey. OMG, I am rubbing my nipples with nostalgia. Every kid Every cool kid from back in the day loved this show, it was the tits. To this day it still holds it’s own. But, it’s the theme song that most remember. Fuck, walk up to any stranger (well, in their mid 20’s to early 30’s) and say “Duck Tales” and they will be sure to follow up with a “Oo-oo”. It’s just been ingrained into our DNA.
Now, for those Ducktales fans among you, have you ever wondered what the theme song sounded like in other countries? Ya, me neither. I spend my time thinking about cupcakes and porn. Most recently I’ve been wondering what this angry rash is on my ass, but that’s neither here of there. Point is, other countries voiced the lyrics to Ducktales in their own language, and by god, it’s hilarious. Eend Verhaals! ooOOOoo! Ha, other countries are wacky. It’s amazing what unprecedented international appeal Ducktales has.
We all have our moments where we start singing an old cartoon theme song from back in the day and get that good nostalgic feeling. Well, if you want that good feeling then check this video out as Freddy Gedde will get you all nostalgic with his musical talents.
From DuckTales to ThunderCats and Darkwing Duck to Transformers, he even included a few foreign theme songs such as The Moomins. Check the video out as I’m sure you’ll appreciate the effort he put into this and check out his other video on his YouTube page for more.
You know how when you start reminiscing about cartoons, their theme songs always end up sticking in your head? Don’t hate me, but I’m about to supply some glue.
“Ducktales.”“Digimon.”“Thundercats.” Swedish guy covers these cartoon theme songs and more in a a seven-minute Fredrick LarssonYouTube video. Need some amphibian action? Larsson sings “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” for you. Thinking about a frightened canine? Old Freddie has a “Scooby-Doo”chanson that’s right up your alley. And I have no idea what “The Raggy Dolls” is, but he sings about that, too.
Larsson isn’t a hack — the guy actually is a pretty good singer, and he plays a guitar, to boot. Sure, he’s got weird fake-bearded friends supplying back-up vocals, but who doesn’t?
Check out Larsson’s cartoon medley below, and then head to his YouTube channel for more cover goodness, including songs from video games!
