For the past month I’ve sort a little bit occasionally been trying to pick up guitar and started posting some of my songs. They’re all really, really basic but it’s so much fun to actually be able to play these pieces of music that I sing all the time. ❤ This is me singing/playing Moon River if you want to check it out!
So we’re just going to abandon all order and organization for this and the proceeding week and I’m gonna throw a video your way on a Friday morning. But so intense was its awesomeity that is needed to be shared! 🙂
Here’s the original song, which is pretty epic on its own:
Somebody That I Used to Know – Gotye
It’s all over the radio at this point so I’m sure you’ve heard it, but still hasn’t had time to get old. 🙂
Anyways, while this is my song of the week contribution to you, I’ve got more to share. The work of one amazing a cappella group called Pentatonix. Apparently they won the third season of yet another generic singing competition called The Sing-Off, but I guess if they’re producing sound like this it might actually be worth checking out.
Here is their cover of the above song (fair warning: it’s pretty mind-blowingly intense 🙂 ). I’ve got mad respect for a cappella-ers, and these guys definitely know what they’re doing. Check it out:
