18 – Peponi [Paradise]

The power and beauty of language is unbelievable.

Peponi – Swahili for paradise. A fantastic twist by The Piano Guys Steven Sharp Nelson, John Schmidt featuring Alex Boye to the song Paradise by Coldplay. I love how they tied in Swahili to the  African safari theme of the Coldplay original.

Check out other work by The Piano Guys. They are very talented musicians putting an acoustic twist on modern-day music. I’m a sucker for the piano. Boy do I wish I would have stuck with it as a kid. Mistake.

Here is the original by Coldplay.

“Don’t only practice your art, but force your way into its secrets, for it and knowledge can raise men to the divine.” – Ludwig van Beethoven

Now that is a quote to remember.

7 – Back to the Start

Chipotle wowed audiences during last nights 54th annual Grammys with its first ever nationally aired commercial. The Scientist, originally covered by Coldplay was covered by none other than the famous Willie Nelson. This eye-opening commercial got viewers talking.

Such a clever commercial. I thought Chipotle did a great job of trying to bring back the idea of humane, wholesome farming within an industry that is so impure. An idea that has been completely diminished over the years thanks to mass production within the fast food industry. It is commercials like this one that slowly bring people back to reality. Something that changes a lifestyle.
