I Didn’t Know I Needed An Electro Version Of Scott Joplin’s ‘Maple Leaf Rag’, But I Do
Yes, I was browsing YouTube again. It's for work!
Everybody in Sedalia knows about Scott Joplin. He's something we're taught about since we were youngin's. And after all, we have a whole festival to honor his music every year, bringing in people from all over the world. I guess I thought I had seen/heard it all when it came to Scott Joplin's music.
I THOUGHT WRONG.
Turns out there's a YouTuber named PaulHD who has a very active account with lots of music, art and creative endeavors. I don't know anything about them - they don't have any information on their page - but it seems like they're a really talented person! And wouldn't you know, they just so happened to make a new version of the "Maple Leaf Rag" just about a week ago.
Now that's gonna be stuck in my head for ages. I guess I never thought Ragtime had an updated sound, but that just goes to show you that music transcends through anything- time, location, language, anything.
How cool is that? Pretty great, in my opinion, anyway. What do you think about the new, updated version of the old classic?
