Friday Night Videos: A Cappella

Today’s Friday Night Videos is dedicated to Liza.

The Achordants: Such Great Heights (2005)
A college a cappella group covers The Postal Service song, complete with hand gestures and “dancing.” CAUTION: CONTAINS A CAPPELLA SINGING.

The Carleton Singing Knights: Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger (2005)
It’s sad that excited shrieks drown out parts that I expected would be hard to reproduce a cappella. Everyone knows that music should be enjoyed by people sitting quietly in their seats.

Who knew there were so many college a cappella groups covering pop songs with a significant electronica component? Not I, until I started searching YouTube. But it’s not all Daft Punk and The Postal Service. Sometimes it’s Sufjan Stevens. And you know what that means, right? BONUS VIDEO.

The Carleton Singing Knights: Chicago (2006)

And now I am done inflicting a cappella videos on you.
