There's a new Piano Guys video and they've combined Michael Jackson with Bach

1770s meets the 1970s? Johann Sebastian Bach meets The Jackson 5? 'I Want You Bach', the new video from The Piano Guys, is the ultimate disco/sonata/viola da gamba/harpsichord smash.

How on earth does this work?

Well, take a harpsichord and a cello (or gamba, we're not fussy):

 

Add all the wigs and powder from a Blackadder episode:

 

Add a bit of the greatest composer the world has ever known:

 

And finally a cracking Motown hit:

The coming together of arguably two of the greatest geniuses the world has ever known - the great Baroque composer and virtuoso JS Bach, and the king of pop, Michael Jackson. Both masters of kicking basslines and catchy melodies. It's a match made in music geek heaven.

 

Enjoy the full-flared, afro-ed, regal Baroque experience here:

The Utah duo are proving to be one of the music's biggest viral stars, to date clocking up well over half a billion YouTube views with their blend classical and pop juxtapositions.


Fancy a bit of the original?

It's basically the same minus the harpsichords and silly wigs...
