Video: Blue Scholars – Paul Valery

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

The Blue Scholars re-imagine Owl City’s “Fireflies”.

” Sampling a track that took its style from another track was, well, our version of being forward. Futuristic, if you will. Going with the theme that ‘The Future is not what it used to be’, it inspired us to create a video montage of the song – a visual remix.”

This song was created to celebrate and commemorate the life of the late, great Notorious BIG. As the 2nd “Deleted Scene” from the “City of God’s Son” project, I wanted to show my respects by creating this song, and create a parallel world where Biggie still lives.
