I have probably mentioned before that one of my favourite YouTube channels is Blind Covers, a show in which a band covers a song they _don't know_, just from the lyrics. So, basically, they write a new song using the lyrics of an existing song. And they only have one hour to finish it and record it!

One of my favourite covers is Erin & Melissa's cover of Pride by Manchester Orchestra:

Music Monday! This week I wanted to show what we take for granted in music. It sounds good when there's "groove" and all instruments are in sync.

See 0:35, when the other instruments enter. It's a complete disaster, like listening to three songs at once! Also 1:36 is worth... experiencing.
