    I love watching people's abilities to take another person's work and make it just as cool…great video.

    I didn't know this song until now and its pretty good, ill look for the original to compare.

  • Rickyrick63

    I couldn't even play the flute in elementary school :/

  • EriktheRed

    Awesome. Loved it. but I can't help but think the conga part would have been even better if he'd have used one of the actual congas he had instead of that midi electronic pos. Just my opinion though.

  • Jouhker

    That was beautiful! Lots of soul there!

  • StarboardEngine

    why does the title say her?

    • CosmicMonkey

      Because its the title of the song!

      Above video not the entire of the song- listen to the original and the title will make sense (no insult meant to Elijah though- the dudes got skills!)

  • GlibTongue

    If I hadn't accidentally stumbled upon Reggie Watts a few years ago…I would have been impressed by this.

    • Canucks_Rule

  • Canucks_Rule

    gotta give it up for the percussion.

  • Hypno

    Oh ya? Well, this one time, I sort of played something that sort of sounded like the theme to Rocky on a harmonica… so ya. There.
