You have to watch "Tonight we Ride". The whole video is an idle speed, no budget version of Mad Max and you can see from their faces, they know how abysmal ridiculous they look like. The next time they're in Germany, i'll try to visit one of their shows.

Here's a reaction video by a vocal coach:

Yeah, Charismatic Voice is my favourite reactor. She knows, what she's talking about, she cosplays, plays D&D and is such a lovely person in general. Actually i rewatched her reaction on a Blind Guardian video just a few hours ago.

My listening habits  come from a 16Gb USB drive containing about 100 CD's of 50/60's pop, classical country and some big band era stuff that I carry in my car.  About 4 days of randomly playing joy.  I have  no idea what a reactor might be.  (Anotheryearolder...)

Someone who watches a music video for the first time, tapes the process and puts it on youtube. It's fun to see, how someone who never listened to a specific genre, lets say a gangsta from the hood, is flabbergasted by the epicness of symphonic metal and asks himself, why he never listened to such fantastic music. Some, like Charismatic Voice (opera singer) are professionals and analyze vocal or instrumental techniques. And it's a great way to find new, exciting music for yourself.

I was not aware that there was anything exciting about the new music.  :-P

Well, new music may be old music, you never know it existed, because you didn't have access to it. Much to learn, you have, old padawan :-P

I ended up falling down that rabbit hole when looking up videos for this thread!  I went through all the reactions to the Righteous Brothers ("I thought those dudes was black!") and the Bee Gees (likewise, surprisingly -- wait until they find out they're Aussies!) and am currently hooked on Home Free, the a capella group that started out country and has expanded.

Here are a couple of their best efforts (yes, all instrumental sounds are provided by the mouths of the beat boxer or other members)

I just saw a documentary about Satoshi Kon. I had never heard of him (don't kill me anime fans!) as I'm not really into anime movies. Apart from the genius he seemed to be, there was a nice song from the soundtrack of his last movie "Paprika". The version played in the documentary was with some classic voices (Ensemble corde et anima) and I loved it but I couldn't find it anywhere upto now. That said I found on YT the movie version which is good too, so here it is.

To those interested, the documentary is called "Satoshi Kon, the Illusionist" and it's a French documentary but with many Japanese collaborators (subtitled).
