You Belong With Me; Taylor Swift cover by Maniac

We tried something new this week and recorded live into quicktime, and mixed together the audio and video from the 6 takes. With the Australian and American musicians submitting footage separately, we really had no idea how the song would come together until we saw the final product. In order of appearance, from top left, Jake Grigg, Kick, Shawn Harris, Wolfgang A. Fatso, the Artist*, and Shaky.

  3. I won't say that this was the first one that left me speechless (I believe Count Drunkula had that honor) but I'm definitely out of words, aren't I? Amazing job.

  4. i think mr. fatso should have done a little piano solo bit at the end, but that was seriously fantastic.
    THANK YOU, sir maniacs!

  6. Fantastic! Superb! Wish I had a billion more adjectives to describe the awesomeness, but I think an "I love it!" should suffice. I love it!

  10. this is probably one of the greatest things I've seen in a while. I'm impressed that you recorded it all separately, seems like there would be timing issues. Anyhow, I can't wait for more!

    p.s. love the shirt, Shawn. You look like a musical pirate.

  11. This is good (i hate taylor swift lol) but i think you should cover a classic song... how about something from Queen?

  16. Better than the original? I think so!

  17. Your social experiment has me second guessing myself, do I love it because you are awesome or do I love it because the song was specially crafted and designed for me to love it... either way great job.

  20. So much better than the real song [that I actually never listened to till after hearing your cover].

    Sorry, Miss Swift, this is real talent.
