My cover theme continues with this little bit of oddness. Okay, there’s this guy Owen Pallett but he usually goes by the name Final Fantasy. He plays violin and uses loop pedals to structure his songs live. If you’ve ever seen KT Tunstall live performing “The Black Horse and the Cherry Tree” then you know what I’m talking about. It makes for interesting sounds when it’s done with violin instead of guitar. So, on occasion Final Fantasy will bust out with some covers. The first time I heard him was a cover of a Joanna Newsom song. Well, recently I stumbled upon this live gem. It’s Final Fantasy loop pedalling his way through Mariah Carey. Oh this is a superb thing and I’m so glad that someone caught this moment for posterity and put it on youtube. It’s both brilliant and ridiculous at the same time.

Song 508- “Fantasy” by Final Fantasy
