The Other Guys, a Scottish premier all-male acappela group hailing from the University of St Andrews has performed a tribute to the up and coming British royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton. The Royal Romance song is a talented and creative blend of James Horner, Gustav Holst, Lady Gaga, The Human League and Michael Jackson.
Royal Romance was recorded and filmed in and around St Andrews, the rural Scottish town where Prince William and Kate Middleton famously met during their academic studies.
This video and musical composition are humorously and musically entertaining, and the title Royal Romance being a ploy of Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance should give you a taste of what to expect. The beat-boxing is also brilliant, with clips of the beat-boxer serving as a subtle reminder that there is no instrument backing.
Royal Romance is a terrific tribute to a historic event that comes as a breath of fresh air in the midst of the somewhat suffocating media and commercial hype surrounding the royal wedding.
