Seaweed Song



The blog has made no secret about the PS22 Chorus's involvement with Passion Pit and their new album, Manners. As a thank you for the amazing opportunity they brought to our kids, we decided to take on one of the band's songs in it's entirety. We chose "Seaweed Song," the closing track on the CD. And the kids knock it out of the.... pit!




Update 12:38PM: After I sent this video on to Michael Angelakos, lead singer of Passion Pit, he e-mailed back (and I quote), "Oh. My. God." Now I just found out band member Ian Hultquist linked to the video on Passion Pit's Twitter page, saying, "Mike and I are nearly in tears from this." COOOOL!

Have you thought of doing any Phish or They Might Be Giants songs? They Might Be Giants actually plays shows for kids and I think a lot of Phish songs would be great with a choir of fun-loving kids jumping around on stage. Regardless of the band, I'd love to hear something from that genre. The kids are great when they are up on stage singing and letting loose!

It's almost ridiculous how amazing they sound on this song. I'm thrilled to see you were able to salvage the MY huge mess up! LOL...you and I both know what I mean.

Miss them! Miss you!
