Indie folk rock musician Jonathan Coulton turns 50 today, so here’s a 30-minute documentary I made about his career.
This is a video I made over ten years ago, featuring Jonathan Coulton’s folksy soft-rock cover of Queen’s ‘We Will Rock You’, the 52nd and final song he did for his Thing-A-Week project.
Jonathan Coulton was born on the 1st of December 1970 in New Haven, Connecticut.
He had hopes of becoming a musician from a young age. So while studying for his Bachelor of Arts degree at Yale University, he was part of several bands with fellow students. Most notably the collegiate a capella group The Yale Whiffenpoofs.
Back in February, I shared my favorite song from each ‘Miracle of Sound’ album.
This proved to be very difficult, as there are so many great songs there!
So I have decided to make a Top 10 or Top 5 list for each album, depending on how big the album is to begin with.
