While the sheer talent on display this month was incredible it’s time to announce the Beat100 winners; so.

Their song was incredibly funny and their success shows the viral power of the internet and why comedy will always have us coming back for more. The song is a lively Ukulele led track with fantastic ambling music and incredibly funny vocals. The premise of the lyrics, which essentially mock the lack of accountability the leaders of our financial institutions face, have wide reaching appeal and make a serious point. This blend of satire with exceptional musical talent and a well-structured, well produced video have made the song an instant hit on the Beat 100 music videos chart and understandably have generated a fantastic response. Their song encapsulates much of the Zeitgeist of modern times while channelling those feelings into a song that is bouncy, uplifting and definitely in line with the fantastic weather we’ve been enjoying over the last few weeks. Doogie Hunter and co. walk away with a $500 prize and we can’t wait to have them back again in the next few months.
In second place with an impressive $300 Cash Win, 5662 views and 536 votes came Nothing But Thieves with their soul catching Queen cover – The Show Must Go On.
Nothing But Thieves have caused quite a stir here at Beat 100 as taking on Queen for a cover choice is by no means an easy feat. Their cover of one of the saddest and most inspiring of Queen’s songs made an incredible impression on us and the music video charts and manages to capture a lot of the feel and experience of the song. Nothing But Thieves manage to re-envision the song with a much sadder, yet still uplifting, cover that pays homage to Queen while still showcasing the bands unique talents and identity. The vocal talents are superb and the band’s incredibly tight performance brings new life to one of Queen’s most inspiring and in a way tragic songs. Nothing But Thieves win $300 and we can’t wait to see their next entry to our music charts.
In third place with over 2100 views and 336 votes, $200 Cash Win comes Aaron Lordson with his soulful cover of What a Wonderful World.
Aaron Lordson is an incredibly talented guitarist and vocalist and his fame is world renowned as a street performer and for his self-promotion through his own record label Lordson Music. His voice is incredible and he captures the great blues and soul voices of years gone by in his own unique vocals. His cover of Louis Armstrong’s classic What a Wonderful World is beautiful, compelling and as soulful as the original.
For Beat 100 we’re so pleased to be able to showcase such amazing unsigned talent from around the world and the quality of artists and music videos appearing on the site seem to get better and better. As things heat up for the coming months music awards we can’t wait to see what new talents we’ll be bringing you.
