you're welcome

Okay, before you play this video, you need to hear the song Hide and Seek by Imogen Heap. You can find it on any mp3 site, and it's most likely on YouTube. In fact...here. I wish I could embed it, but it was disabled.

Now, after you've watched that, watch the video below. There are many awesome a capella groups out there, but of the many that have tried it, only a handful really got it. And these guys are at the top of the list. This is a UNC a capella men's group. (more like Ra capella!)

(rockapella? because they rock? no? okay.)

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Achordants.


There were other groups that came close, like the Dartmouth Dodecaphonics, but none got it just right (the Dartmouth group did it in straight time instead of catching the subtle ritards and accelerandos).

So, you're welcome.

Two things:

1. I know they still aren't perfect. They're just the best.

2. The high pitched note is sung by the dork on the left that's dancing around.

Three things:

1. There is actually a group named Rockapella. My cousin loved them growing up. www.rockapella.com

2. I noticed the dancing around guy. I was all, "Dude, calm self."

3. Awesomeness!

Yes, Pat. Indeed, thank YOU.

Now that we are CH residents, I fully plan to attend one of these concerts if given the opportunity. :) Come with me?

Hahah! You know what? I saw clips of the Achordants last year in September/October/November timeframe. They have another video for "Carry On My Wayward Son" and that is what caught me.

Of course, now that I am here, I plan on attending one of their gigs. Should be fun!

HAH! The word verification was UNCRU (UNC-RU?)
