Song du jour: 2Cellos, “Thunderstruck”

Yes, you can play rock and roll on a cello. 2Cellos playing AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck.” There’s a bit of cinematic cheating on the strict eighteenth-century setting as they add looper about  halfway through and some distortion a bit after that — and no, they’re not plugged in — but who cares? Musically, it rocks. A Facebook friend of mine watched this on my wall and then posted, “Okay, now I’m going to go make out with my husband.”
