Cover Artiste Brett Domino Is Even Better Than The Real Thing
Every day Rocks Off trolls the tubes of you in search of videos deemed worthy to share. If you have something you think deserves to be video of the day, send a link to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sometimes you hear a cover that is so much better than the original that you wish that it had come first; Dr. & the Medics' version of Norman Greenbaum's "Spirit in the Sky," by way of a for instance.
Well, how about six covers at once that are each, in and of themselves, better than the original, but when combined together become a New Wave progressive opus of life-affirming wonderfulness. That's what we get from Brett Domino and Steven Peavis.
Using everything from soda cans to an iPhone to a glockenspiel, they combine JLS, Ke$ha, Bieber, Katy Perry and Alicia Keys into a Voltron of complete pop un-suck that will definitely double-stuff your Oreo.
Domino makes his mark on the music industry laying down various oddball cover songs, and got landed on Britian's Got Talent with his version of "Beat It." Unfortunately, Simon Cowell's disdain for the electronic keyboard kept Domino from advancing.
Whatever. YouTube loves him, and that's better than Simon Cowell any day.
