Ordinary People (Mix 2)

A few hours ago, Vanessa posted her own version of John Legend’s ‘Ordinary People’. Listen via the Flash player below:

I’ve never heard of that song before, nor have I heard of "John Legend". Vanessa did a nice job with the piano and singing. Since I was itching for something to play on my guitar, I decided to add a guitar track to Vanessa’s recording. About three hours later, here’s Mix 2:

After listening to Vanessa's version, and doing Mix #2, I was curious who's John Legend. So I found this John Legend webpage. You can listen to the songs and view his music videos too (here's the QuickTime version of the Ordinary People music video).

He's good!

    This is the first time I'm seeing "open source music" in action!

    I'm both amused and impressed :)

  2. Thanks Melvin. Actually this is the second mashup I did with Vanessa. Here's the first.

  3. Heh, thanks for the remix. I think you should have your own solo for one verse!

    BTW, this is my account of John Legend's concert in Singapore earlier this year:

  4. Looks like you guys had fun. Nice one! :)
