Not Into Acapella Music? How About Instrumental ?!

I want to be fair to all kinds of music and with several recent posts featuring the human voice I felt it was only appropriate to share some music with no human voice but just instruments.

A good man on my team at work introduced me to "The Piano Guys" and once I saw one of their videos (I think I saw Cello Wars first) I was hooked!  These two artists (with several videos that now feature other artists, including singers, etc.) do some simply amazing things with a cello (or several cellos to be more precise) and a piano.  The videos are almost as amazing to watch as the music is to listen to.  Creative, funny, but also beautifully connected to the music they are playing.

Song Of The Day:
While starting my "Recovery Week" (that's what they call the 4th week of the P90X program) with Yoga X tonight, I found myself thinking about peaceful music that inspires.  One of my favorite mash-ups that The Piano Guys have done is Beethoven's 5th and OneRepublic's Secrets.  They titled the song
"Beethoven's 5 Secrets" and the video contains some beautiful, scenic images that complement the beautiful music.  I hope you like it.
