a plea: help me find out the title of Amandas song
« on: December 20, 2013, 09:05:36 PM »

Hey everyone :)
some time ago I've watched/listened to a music video on youtube with AP (that time she wasn't AFP)and an afroamerican guy with afro. She was singing and playing on a piano and the guy was singing something in german. The video was shoot in a room with book-cases with so many books in it, and with old furnitures. Please write me what was the title of this song, I was looking for it for about 3 hours on the internet and could't find it. And I love this song :)

cheers, Maja

Are you sure he wasn't Afro-German?  Because if he was, I have no idea what you're talking about.

Maja,

I know exactly the video you're talking about.  Unfortunately, it's not on YouTube anymore.  The funny operatic singer with the afro singing in fake German -- okay, he had one real German line about his pencil being dark blue, like you'd hear in German 1 class -- was the multicultural, multitalented American comedian, Reggie Watts.  His career has gone ballistic in the past couple of years with appearances on Conan, on another cable program, and at TED conferences.  His beatbox-looping was featured in a Bud Light campaign that just aired on the Super Bowl.  Some clips:
