Friday Face-Offs: “This Land Is Your Land” – 2nd Place

Something about this video just does it for me. Maybe because it reminds me of when I made a three-string dulcimer at summer camp in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and then I walked around the house all year, going “plunk plink plonk” on it, trying to playing Minutemen songs on it?

And also, is the guy very pumped to play “This Land Is Your Land?” Is he pretty sad about it? And at 0:31, is he really, really sad? And does he wail on that final chord very hard? And, yeah, just one last time to reiterate, at 1:35, is he wailing very hard when you look at his facial expression?

And also, is his hoodie yellow enough? Hmm … can’t tell if his hoodie is holding shit down very hard.

FRIDAY FACE-OFFS! Winning video is next!

Friday Face-Offs: “This Land Is Your Land” – 4th Place

2,000 guitarists playing “This Land is Your Land” simultaneously.

I can’t tell if this is the corniest musical moment of all time, or the most avant-garde.

One thing I do know, though: When Country Joe McDonald says, “One more time!” it means “Twenty more times.”

Friday Face-Offs: “This Land Is Your Land” – 7th Place

One thing we love about living in our town is seeing Pete Seeger running around in his crazy hats and floppy sweaters.

But this guy is bringing a serious sweater style to the game — he’s putting 90-Cent on notice!

LOL, this video makes me pretty sad. YEAH RIGHT LET’S DO THIS–

Friday Face-Offs!

Welcome to the Pete Seeger Birthday Edition of FRIDAY FACE-OFFS.

Could there be any doubt about this week’s song? It’s “My Humps,” by the Black Eyed Peas.

Just kidding, it’s “This Land is Your Land,” by Woody Guthrie.

Let’s do this!
