Raleigh is not Carrboro

Paul, · Categories: Amusements, General

Compare “Shine Raleigh Shine” to “It’s Carrboro”. The difference between uncool and cool.

On YouTube: Raleigh (removed by user) and Carrboro (22,837 views).

Press: David Menconi on “Shine Raleigh.” Ashley Perryman on “It’s Carrboro”

It’s like comparing the Bank of America guy’s “One” with the David Cross/Modest Mouse version of the same song.

    What about this random-ish flickr version of the Shine video: ?
    I think it’s cooler, but that’s not saying much.

    Funnier because of the serendipity of the images, I agree. Many State Fair animals during the singing about hight tech for example. But still no Carrboro. The music is so baaaad (and unintentionally too).
