-USC Sirens doing Time is Running Out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DB5cjXm9UNM
the soloist has a good voice but looks so… bored. and there’s a reason i never joined an all-girl a cappella group. the sound is so … whiny?nasal?plaintive? without boys (though i do issue the disclaimer that some (i guess the world i’ll use is plaintive?) songs sound way awesome in all-girl groups). and the arrangement… leaves… something to be desired /snobby
-UCSD Tritones doing Hysteria: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCW89u8qHmo
valiant effort; background is too busy (maybe it’s a function of shitty youtube quality, guess I’d have to hear it live to really judge)… at least the soloist is a little more inspired
I suspect that this is going to be another one of those lists that gets longer and longer.
I could barely watch these. Guh. We have such fucking good arrangers it makes me sick. I think Spot doing Stockholm Syndrome blows these out of the water, and while in light of these videos it’s not saying a lot, for me to actually believe that is. ZOMG ANGELA GET IT UP ON YOUTUBE SO WE CAN BE INTERNET FAMOUS!!!!!!!!!! and because I wish I were matt bellamy
-Rutgers Casual Harmony doing TiRO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCJFcTZnMqs
apparently, for icca 2006, they won 1st place and best choreo for this at the cornell quarterfinal in the mid-atlantic region. http://varsityvocals.com/icca/results.shtml
What are some of your favorite youtubed a cappella performances of all time?
