Oh-a oh

From Pitchfork:
“If YouTube ever gets a TV channel, let’s hope they play this first. The Buggles’ prescient 1979 single ‘Video Killed the Radio Star’ has had more than its share of covers, but this bright, well-crafted version by the Wrong Trousers reminds us why the song was so fun in the first place. Busking in Balboa Park, Calif., high-school students Mack Leighton, Kelsea Little, and Joseph Lorge cleverly and carefully adapt Trevor Horn’s tune for upright bass, mandolin, and harp.”
