Go here to watch Amanda Palmer's video for "The World Turned Upside Down," which is a cover done in Palmer's signature style. She is an auteur and subversive in the best, most theatrical way.
Palmer has teamed up with local Boston filmmaker and friend Michael Gill to create a video montage of images from the Occupy movement, backed by her ukulele version of "The World Turned Upside Down."
The 1975-released Leon Rosselson song about the Diggers movement was recently recorded at Boston's Mad Oak studios, after Palmer played it first to enthusiastic crowds at Occupy Boston and Occupy Wall Street. Michael Gill met Amanda Palmer when interviewing her for a documentary about local and recently deceased Boston music scene hero Billy Ruane. When discussing her plans for "The World Turned Upside Down," Gill revealed that he had already created a short film of the arrests that took place at Occupy Boston. They quickly agreed on the idea and decided to collaborate on the video which was released this week.
