Reprogram Me (Workshop Cast Recording, Non-Player Character The Musical) by Brendan Bradley
Reprogram Me (Workshop Cast Recording, Non-Player Character The Musical) by Brendan Bradley is complicated to describe, it is an amazing song with comedy and grief laced into one, a story line, a deeper meaning, and a video that raps it all together in a wonderful manner. I truly don't know how to go about the creation Brendan Bradley has made because it really surpasses anything I have seen in its genre. As described by Brendan himself a non-player character in a fictional video game witnesses the death of the Hero and turns to the audience to navigate the five stages of grief (represented as five virtual worlds). The video with the vocals and lyrics put together give me a wreck it ralph kind of vibe where I can see it being the intro into a videogame based movie or even the sound track to a videogame where the NPC finds themselves sentient. The lyrics are genius, conveying the grief the NPC is trying to display but also adding hints of comedy and sarcasm along the way as one of my favorite lines is : "I gotta follow my heart but that's a bunch of rocks". I really hope this Musical makes it into more movies as it is part of a Soundtrack for a Live Virtual Reality Musical called NON-PLAYER because it deserves recognition.
