Something to Love on Tuesday

I love….

a cappella music.

USC Reverse Osmosis sings Fall Out Boy’s “Sugar, We’re Going Down

I’ve loved a cappella music since I discovered Napster, in high school.

Central Michigan University’s On The Rox sings Journey’s “Open Arms”

Oh wait. I’ve loved a cappella music since I was obsessed with PBS’s afternoon television programming.

Rockapella’s “Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?”

My tastes run toward a not-so-polished collegiate sound, with powerful soloists, complicated back-up harmonies and INTENSITY.

UC Berkeley’s DeCadence sings Ben Folds interpretation of Dr. Dre’s “Bitches Ain’t Shit”

I’m biased toward co-ed groups.

The Key Elements from Cornell sing Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So”

I can listen to multiple versions of the same song, over and over.

Darmouth’s Cords sing Big & Rich’s “Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy”

I can listen to genres of music that I never thought myself interested in… as long as it’s a cappella.

University of Wisconsin’s Redefined takes on an “experimental Japanese piece”

And humor. Love it.

Central Michigan University’s Central Harmony does “Galileo” by The Indigo Girls

It wasn’t a goal of mine to SING a cappella myself, but I was lucky to chance into it.

I miss it so!

  1. oh my goodness, that blondie in rockapella sure is cute! i had totally forgotten about carmen sandiego, that show was so awesome. i even had a cd-rom game of it when i was a kid. good times.

    thanks for posting the videos, those were fun.

  2. his butt, at 4.43, is pretty much perfection. just sayin’.

  3. This is my kind of post! Rockapella was the best part of Carmen Sandeigo. Well that and the lady calling everyone Gumshoe.

    I love this one… partially because it’s great a cappella but also because I may have wanted to marry Garth Brooks as a four year old.
