Just take Battlestar Galactica reimagined, the current Star Trek movies and Dr Who, since the arrival of the ninth Doctor. The originals of these were briliant but the reinvention has taken things to a whole new level of awesome.
Now, I give you Justin Bieber’s Beauty and the Beat, reinvented as a Baroque classic!
Yes, you heard me right! We’re going to party like it’s 1312 tonight…
OK, so the original version does not fit my personal definition of awesome, but this version sure does.
This ingenious version of Bieber’s song was created for Red Nose Day in the U.K. this year.
No, I can’t believe I’m posting a Justin Bieber song either. But, trust me, this is genius!
You will find yourself smiling along with the countertenor Robin Blaze. I wrote this article in an airport lounge. I was asked afterward I removed my earphones what had made me smile so much. It was sort of hard to explain.
Happy Friday Anthillians!
