Philly Complaint Choir

For those unaware, the Complaint Choir is a worldwide phenomenon - but has yet to blossom in Philadelphia - ironic, yes? Well, have no fear - it's arrived - and with a passion that only Philly can deliver!

Here's the gist - everyday citizens jot down complaints they have -- and then all these complaints are gathered and tossed together to create a song, which is then performed by an all-volunteer choir made up of many who submitted their own complaints!

You can find out more at their site (link below) - but first check out this wonderful video shot underground at Suburban Station (a central train station near City Hall for those not from Philly).

To get the full effect, you really need to turn on the close captioning. Just hover your cursor over the lower right corner (up arrow menu) and then select "CC". If that doesn't work, you may have to click through and do the same on the non-embedded YouTube page.
