Learn to Fly

I know it's made the rounds - as even I've posted it on Facebook. But I was just so wow'd by 1,000 musicians playing the Foo Fighters' "Learn to Fly".

I like the song anyways, but I thought it was an incredible way to try to woo a band to play your native land.

I get that I don't know how much of the playing was isolated with mics, because you certainly don't hear any screw-ups. But when they get long shots of the drummers, not one of them is out of synch. It is totally awesome to watch.

And everyone is in tune. But with so many singers, you're not hearing the Peter Bradys of Italy.

The song is only the first four minutes of the video. Watch the rest if you like. Or don't.

The Foo Fighters even put this video on the front page of their website. I don't see how Dave Grohl & Co. cannot go and perform there now.

I'd love for the Foo to play WITH them.
