i was curious about an artist i was thinking about posting, brie larson, so i googled her to find out who this person was and why i had her song on my itunes. turns out she's from sacramento, like me (sorta). i then started pondering other artists who have come from my background, which led to today's post (and future posts).
today's post is a collection of songs from most of the stanford a cappella groups, since i was in one of those not too long ago. hope you enjoy.
stanford harmonics - right now
the first a cappella song i was asked to sing, since it was the callback song when i auditioned freshman year.
stanford mixed company - god is a dj
one of the best soloists i've ever had the pleasure of singing with, and one of the best i've heard in general.
everyday people - can't take my eyes off of you
ep is an excellent group, and with the r&b, soul, and hip hop genres they pretty much get to sing some great stuff.
stanford mendicants - wake me up before you go-go
thought about including a song from the audition cd, but instead decided to share one of the mendicants great versions of a classic song.
stanford counterpoint - scotty doesn't know (youtube)
if you've seen eurotrip, you're familiar with this song. knowing the lead singer in the video, it seems like the perfect song for her.
stanford fleet street - greatest hits of the 1590s and today (youtube)
i just watched this new version of the song, and fleet street actually updated it to include soulja boy. nice.
stanford mixed company - leland's island (live)
this is the classic mixed company song that parodies the stanford hymn, to the tune of 'gilligan's island'.
