A Beautiful Rendition Of David Bowie's 'The Man Who Sold The World' Performed On A Traditional Korean Gayageum

This is a video of musician Luna Lee covering David Bowie's 'The Man Who Sold The World' on a traditional Korean gayageum (previously: her covers of Lynyrd Skynyrd's 'Free Bird' and Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'). I think this might actually be my favorite so far, the song really seems to lend itself to the gayageum. But what do I know? I'm tone-deaf, you should take everything I say about music with a grain of salt. Oh -- and with this pill. "What is it?" It's like the red pill from the Matrix. "It has 'BONER 3000' printed on the side." Woops -- I meant this one. "This one says 'BONER 9000'." Now that's the good stuff. Hurry though, I already took four and I'm starting to feel it.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Cameron, who agrees the best music comes from the heart, and not the butt. *brap!* You disgust me.

    Sounds like it should belong in a 'James Bond' intro.

    Close, it's the intro to Metal Gear Solid 5. Well, the original is in it.

    Didn't know that this song could still hit me, but it did. It sounds just a little more solemn on this.

    Was it written in D-Minor or something? I need to look that up.

    Looked it up and indeed it was. Spinal Tap was right!
