Soap operas all seem to follow the same recipe and formula. And that definitely applies to the music. In every dramatic scene when Amy admits she’s been cheating on Matt with a vampire but still loves him, that high pitched piano enters the musical realm. 

Back in 2011, YouTuber TV Boy88 thought the music on soaps were so bad that they could recreate the same sound with just their cat and a keyboard. Amazingly, with just the help of a few kitty treats, that’s exactly what they did.

But only now has the video exploded online, amassing over 100,000 views just today.

Fifty-one year old Gary Skaggs has a very, very unique way to pay the bills. One day while relaxing with his girlfriend, he had an epiphany, imagining a piano-bike. 

After purchasing a piano for $80, and adding in a little time, effort, and sweat, his invention had come to fruition.

The piano-bike was a reality.

Since then, he has been pedaling around the timeless town of San Francisco, bringing piano music and smiles to the streets in the most unlikely of ways. 

Now, The  has featured Gary and his musical bike in this City Exposed video report which has started to trend this week.

It’s hard to find anyone on the planet who doesn’t know the tune to the first level of the classic Super Mario Bros. Nintendo game. Even in Israel

Last summer, Israeli YouTuber EranAmir–who is online famous for his Black And White In Color piece–traversed the streets of Israel for another creative art project.

He asked 300 passersby to sing one note of music along with his portable piano while he recorded them. He then compiled all the notes to create one harmonious melody on The Human Piano.

Though the video debuted last July, it has only experienced a viral surge in viewership this week, quickly amassing over 100,000 hits, and counting.

It truly takes guts to not only ask a question in front of your countless peers at Vanderbilt University, but also to ask your musical idol if you can play with him.

And that’s exactly what student Michael Pollack did during “An Evening of Questions and Answers and a Little Bit of Music” with Billy Joel at Vanderbilt two months ago. 

In a packed auditorium, Michael asked, “My favorite song of your is New York State Of Mind… I was wondering if I could play with you…. I would accompany you that is.”  

Incredibly, Billy simply answered, “OK,” to which the crowd erupted in applause. 

After a few moments getting set up, Michael was finally playing his favorite song with the one and only Billy Joel singing at the microphone in front of a crowded auditorium.

A moment he will truly never forget.

Back in the 80′s, Johnny Carson was the literal king of late night television. Nearly the entire nation would watch his nightly program.

One night, the concert pianist scheduled to perform couldn’t make it, so Johnny asked the audience if anyone played the piano.

Pianist David Tolley was the lucky audience member placed onstage. In his full on 80′s style Nike t-shirt tucked in to his skinny jeans and flip flops

Johnny even says, “Obviously this was not set up, because obviously David would not dress this way… if he knew he was going to be on a big television show with a national audience.”

But David proved the timeless phrase, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”. He played Memory from Cats, and blew the audience away.

Playing the piano pedals with flip flops was of course the cherry on top. 

The vintage video was posted online by David himself last Halloween, but the clip has gone viral this weekend after appearing on Reddit
