Tower Block Musical

Anton Hecht, who brought us Blinking Balet (a wonderful YouTube clip of old people dancing in the street to Prokofiev's Dance of the Knights posted before on Neatorama) is back. In his new clip, Anton interviewed the residents of an apartment tower in Newcastle, England ... in the form of a musical:

Five residents were interviewed and their words turned into a short song. Each resident was then filmed in their flat singing their words to camera with a small live band accompanying them. This was edited together to form the full song that moves between the flats of the singing residents with the band accompanying them.

The guys are delightfully off-key and seem very sincere. I wonder what my life would be like if it were a musical ... Hit play or go to Link [YouTube]

Wow, that brought back some nice memories...I used to live in Newcastle, and I go back every now and then just to visit. That apt tower (can never remember the name of it) is in the city center right next to the city library and above some small shops and restaurants. It's a lovely area.
