Was “Video Killed the Radio Star” by the Buggles,” but then, everybody knows that. It’s the quintessential pop culture trivia question.
Some 26 years later, a trio of high-school kids busked their own version, featuring a standing bass, a harp, and, what is that instrument? A Fender mini? Anyway, an amusing performance by The Wrong Trousers. (Not Roy Pearson’s, we hope.)
And since we’re featuring strumming small-sized string instruments, here’s a bonus link to an .mp3 of Stephen Merritt of Magnetic Fields doing “This Little Ukulele,” an in-studio performance at Fair Game with Faith Salie. No distortion. Because this little ukulele tells the truth.
