Are you an Edgar Allan Poe fan in need of some fun? Or perhaps you’re in need of the way to make learning about writing in iambic pentameter that’s both entertaining and easy to understand? In any case, all you need to do is watch the music video for MC Lars’ song “Flow Like Poe” from his The Edgar Allan Poe EP album thanks to the official MC Lars YouTube account:
According to its description, the above video was first shown in New York’s famous Carnegie Hall as part of the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards in 2012 (The same year he released The Edgar Allan Poe EP). In case you’re wondering, the classical music sample is from Johann Pachelbel’s “Canon in D” and you can purchase the same kind of raven puppet seen in the video here. I know the picture there looks different than what you’d expect but trust me, it’s the same type of puppet.
Earlier this year, MC Lars teamed up with MC Ohm-I to release a remix of “Flow Like Poe” as part of The Ill Remix EP Vol. 2. It’s just as insanely catchy as the original and can be downloaded for free here.
