I’m already OBSESSED with Collective Cadenza as it is. No really, the seed started with human whistling, sprouted with the seven dudes playing Kanye and Jay-Z and then fully blossomed with the slightly depressing but still fun history of wooing women.
I’m going to stop using gardening metaphors now but I really can’t praise CDZA enough, so I’m going to keep going on and on about them. Their latest experiment was The Human Jukebox, in which three musicians took donations for requests like Lady Gaga and Michael Jackson. The audience also controlled how fast or slow they played each song.
This video literally made my morning, not just because the money earned was all donated and because Bach won, but also because my faith in humanity is RESTORED.

Do you wonder why women yearn for the fedora-wearing men of the 1950s, who presented fresh red roses at the beginning of dates and who whispered sweet nothings about eyes looking like moons and holding your hand?
Somewhere around 1994 it all went to hell when Boyz II Men started singing about making “love,” which promptly led to muchos songs about f*cking, licking you from head to toe and doing things that can only be described with undecipherable symbols like %$@*$-ing.
While there are definitely some romantic modern tracks out there that collectivecadenza is forgetting (try the James Blunt, Jason Mraz crew), I think they hit the nail on the head. Romance is dying.
It goes both ways though people! So if you’re opting for a homemade, candlelit dinner, forget about Enrique Iglesias “Tonight (I’m Fucking You)” and go for Justin Bieber’s “Die In Your Arms” instead. It will be appreciated.
