As some of you know, I have a deep and abiding love for a cappella music. In high school, I was in a guys' quartet called The Overtones, and in college I was part of the Rice Philharmonics. I'd love to get back to it, but for now I have to content myself with singing along with the Acapodcast, my collection of recordings, and whatever I happen to find on the Internet.
Here's two things that fall into the latter category. The first is an a cappella standard given a new twist by incorporating some particularly ingenious sound effects. (The thunder is my favorite.) The second is a multi-tracking a cappella take on a classic rock song, which rarely fail to make me smile.
Enjoy (and feel free to sing along).
