Something I like
Off topic, I found this guy, Woodkid, one afternoon when browsing on YouTube.Thought to share. He has this very inspired album (both music and lyrics), Golden Age, released this year.
This song, I love you, has two versions, the one on the album and the quintet version. Guess which I like more...
Same for Iron, album and quintet version
