Video 20 of 30: Cover of “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri

Read about the 30 Days of Videos challenge here.

I’ll be honest: it bothers me that this song is a bit of a rip-off of Twenty-Four by Switchfoot. But that’s also what I like about it (because Twenty-Four is an amazing song, and any reminder of its existence makes me happy). I also think that Christina Perri’s voice is beautiful. So, although I wrestle somewhat with the Twenty-Fourness of this song, I enjoy singing and playing it. So, here is my take! (P.S. Cuan and I had the idea for a Twenty-Four/A Thousand Years mash-up before we realised that it was already a thing – gotta be quicker on the button next time! P.P.S. Apologies for the weird, stretchy appearance of this video – I upgraded iMovie and the newer version wouldn’t allow me to adjust the aspect ratio, thus confirming my suspicion that upgrading things is a terrible idea.)
