So I absolutely love this song by Phoenix. Love. It. Every time it comes up on my iPod while I'm driving, I host my own private dance party in my car. I just can't help it.

I was looking on YouTube last night to see if I could find the video for it, and came across this middle school chorus performing the song. Yep. That's right. Middle school chorus.

Things that impressed me:
1. Their chorus teacher's coolness. Schools need more music teachers (and just teachers in general) like this dude.
2. Their harmony and timing is spot-on.
3. Every single kid is completely into it. I love their little hand gestures and facial expressions. I love watching kids truly enjoying music.

Ok, so here it is - I hope this makes your day a little brighter, too!

And just for good measure, here's the original version by Phoenix:

That's amazing! A very cool chorus teacher I must say.
