Wednesday Videos: Two versions of “When I’m Gone”

WednesdayVideoI know, I know…we all got sick of this song, which is from Pitch Perfect, in 2012.  But I just came across this video and had a huge wave of memory for those summers at camp when I learned the cup game, and the summer where I had that super crappy dishwasher job, and the times I actually did just walk off into adventure (admittedly, one of these adventures led directly to being a dishwasher – long story).  So whether you are hanging out at camp, or sweating out a crappy job for minimum wage, or hitting the road, this is for you!

Can’t run that video without including this gorgeous Gaelic version.  The language is beautiful, the song is charming, and all those cooperating kids makes me all teary.

    Oh Great! Now it’s stuck in my head in two languages. 🙂
