I couldn't watch the whole thing, but the look on his face when he's singing "Hey, hey, you, you, I don't like your boyfriend" is priceless.

It's amazing how the continuing permutations of Chris Carrabba's musical influence still make my blood boil.

YouTube version here, including link to mp3.

I liked it, especially around the 4:45 mark where he "covers" the awful "Leave Britney alone" video.

It's cute, and the guy's a really solid guitarist with a good voice. That said, eight minutes is a lot of medley to listen to when there's no real sizzle to most of the segues, nothing interesting going on visually, and no apparent thematic/narrative juice going on behind the song selection.

I may be kind of a goofy-medley snob.

I don't know. I guess he's talented, but I wanted to jam a turkey baster in his nose and squeeze the bulb. In an ironic way, of course.

Is it that he's playing that game where the last chord of the line he's playing is also the first chord of the next song?

I thought it was long too, but if that's what he's doing, it had to be a fun project...

cortex FTW. Dude could probably do something great, but, like, this really bland and really long and neither cohesive nor juxtaposition-y.

Yep, it's some guy playing a bunch of songs on a guitar.

A kitten shirt could have improved it.

That's only 4 songs a minute, 2 many DJ's averaged 7 per minute for a whole hour.

He got me at Thunderstruck. So heartfelt and sweet, that Thunder struck.
