Damn you Glitch25!

I adore the Kransky Sisters.

More on this when I’m awake

And yes more responses to the meme.

I came up with one of those questions that is “The lesser of two evils”

I realize that this really won’t effect everyone. Some people just don’t mind this at all. So I was curious… ‘if you had to pick….”

This has to do with friends singing songs that are fairly well known socially. Disney, Musical, Gaia Pixie (sic), etc.

So, flip a coin if necessary.. but try to find one. Comments on the poll and your opinions are welcome.

1. Put your iTunes, Windows Media Player, iPod etc. on shuffle. (MM: all my mp3s)
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
4. Press one more time, and use that for your post’s title.

And these are my results

From elocinuala I got a pair of cool shot glasses (one with a tiger) and a potable hot drink mug.
From shimmeringjemmy I got a sonic screwdriver pen (with psychic paper) and the 2 Animusic DVDs.
From aiden_freeman I got the flu.

But back to AniMusic (check out their site):

Here’s a sample of their work:

princekermit earlier today posted a stunningly awesome Christmas medley of which I’d learned the first half while I was at Carnegie Mellon. (Note, I didn’t say attending)

It’s been amazingly expanded in his version. This got me searching on YouTube for other wonderful Acapella I adore.

I thought I’d post a few that are (IMNSHO) musts.

“Looking for an Echo” – The Persuasions

“Riu Chiu” – The Monkees
That’s right. And I will always be indebted to lrstrobel for this.

Also thank to lrstrobel this isn’t traditional Acapella but still amazing:
“Ave Maria” – Bobby McFerrin

“Caravan of Love” – The Housemartins
While we’re on a religious bend; I could talk for hours on this one. Listen for the chord ending:
“Now the children of the world can SEE. It’s a better place for us to BE”

“The Longest Time” – Billy Joel

“Under the Boardwalk” – True Image vs. Rockapella
True Image loses this battle hands down.

General Promo – The GrooveBarbers
Sean Altman’s group after Rockapella

“The lion sleeps tonight” – The Tokens
This is the consummate (almost)acapella piece with a stunning CGI video.

Wimoweh – Pete Seegar
the true African chant that brought the tones of Lion to the US.

“Honest Work” – Todd Rundgren
A rare live performance from Rundgren’s studio album “Acapella”. Phenomenal harmonies.

Oh yeah…

“Happy together” – The Nylons

That’ll do for now.
