On Eric Whitacre’s facebook page, he promised to release a pop song that he recorded way back in 1986 whenever he reached 100,000 likes.  Today was that magical day.

Without further ado, here’s Trust Me, a pop song written and sung by Eric Whitacre in 1986.  This is some quintessential 80’s pop right here.

P.S. Sorry if you’re not a fan, but you’re just going to have to tolerate my Whitacre updates.

I believe that some classical musicians can get very militant about the need for music-reading skills and theory, and I couldn’t disagree more: there are all kinds of ways to make and understand great music, and not all of them (even classical music, require music-reading skills). As someone who couldn’t fluently read music until I was in my mid-twenties I feel like I’m in a position to argue both sides. There are people with extraordinary musical gifts who truly struggle with reading music, especially if they come to it late in life, and all too often the classical community just casually dismisses them.

If there’s anything that I would like to do, it would be to turn people on to choral music. Choral music, and classical music in general, has to do with exposure. Ninety-five percent of the time, if you can just get someone in the room to see someone great, it’ll blow their minds. So, yes, if I can in any way become the gateway drug to choral music, that would be just fine.
