This Old Man's Version of "Say Something" Will Leave You in Tears

To start this post off right, I will say you need to know about the fox piano. This was a piano painted and put in Ontario as an art project by artist Katriona Dean. It is there to inspire, to incite, and to encourage anyone to sit down and make beautiful music at any point. She sometimes goes by her project with a camera to see what she can catch on film. On this particular occasion, she found Michael Anthony McNamara playing the A Great Big World/ Christina Aguilera duet solo, "Say Something."

Though already a beautiful and heart-wrenching song, this man's voice and sense of wisdom just brings something else to the song completely. It is very sad still, though. I will warn you. It almost feels sadder when a man sings it who is later in the years.

I will say this: the fly that seems to stay on his shoulder the whole time, as if it is listening to the song, makes it all the more surreal an helps keep you from completely breaking down and bawling at the beauty of it.
