The singer who hid a beautiful new song in her YouTube videos

first_imgIt also brings to mind the epic five year wait for the Twitter account based on Rocky Horror Picture Show’s Frank N Furter to complete the word “anticipation”, and, for me that one time that I tweeted the lyrics to Jay-Z’s “99 Problems” for its tenth anniversary. The “hidden message in online social media” viral trend isn’t all that new, but it is always impressive. On August 24, 2018, Twitter user @CostcoRiceBag revealed they had been secretly tweeting the lyrics to Bohemian Rhapsody using the first word of their tweets over a matter of months. Because Mart had tweeted the words in reverse, users could “sing” Bohemian Rhapsody by scrolling through her feed. These are our favorite YouTube channels (not called CNET) YouTube/doddleoddle YouTuber and musician, Dorothy “Dodie” Clark, just pulled off an almighty, super wholesome YouTube heist that will blow your mind.Dodie, who goes by the moniker “doddleoddle” on YouTube is an English singer and songwriter. Over the last nine months, she uploaded a number of videos that seemed like the standard YouTube fair: vlogs, songs, chatting to her subscribers, fairy lights and general fun shenanigans. But underneath it all, Dodie had hatched a plan.”I’ve uploaded some videos but in each one are several hidden lyrics of a song I’ve written”, she explains at the beginning of her latest video, posted on Jan. 22Dodie explains that in her previous uploaded videos she had been slipping lyrics — sung in the right key, no less — into her vlogs in a clandestine operation to “build a song scrapbook-style”. At the end of her secret nine month stunt, Dodie says she “made a baby of sorts”. The song that she had hidden within was her new single “Arms Unfolding”, which she says was inspired by friends learning to love again, which resonated with how she was feeling about YouTube at the time. It’s all very wholesome and sweet.You can watch — and listen to — Dodie’s video below: 12 Photos Online Tags Share your voice 0 CES 2019: See all of CNET’s coverage of the year’s biggest tech show.Everything about Fortnite: What you need to know about the hit game.

Having said that, 67 percent of Texas Republicans favor the idea of building a wall between the U.S. and Mexico border. But, you know, it’s opposed by 85 percent of Democrats, 73 percent of black respondents, 75 percent of Hispanic respondents”, Blank said. The poll also looks at the Texas voter I.D. law. Blank says 74 percent of Texans think voters should have to present some type of I.D. when voting. “You know, 81 percent of white, 64 percent of black and 70 percent of Hispanic respondents all agree that, you know, presenting an I.D. to vote is not a bad idea. Now, obviously we’re not getting into what form of I.D.” To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Poll results are being released in stages.
