Someone made a classical version of 'Barbie Girl' because the world is ending



https://www.classicfm.com/music-news/videos/barbie-girl-classical-version/

We’re not sure what we did to deserve this video, but here we are. This is ‘I’m a Barbie Girl’, if it had been written in 1835.

Somebody has made a… ‘classical’ version of Aqua’s 1997 pop hit ‘Barbie Girl’.

The arrangement sees the iconic 90s song performed in a new-age operatic style, accompanied by a Chopin nocturne on the piano and some slightly sinister narrative passages.

It’s conceptual and whacky (just why is Barbie played by a pink ‘Ken’, when there’s an actual female Barbie in the video they could’ve used?) and a little dark in places – but also an undeniable must-see.

1. Captures both the existentialist ennui and the forced manufactured joy of the original.
