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.
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.
