Rhapsody From a Police Car!

August 25, 2016

What do you get when you combine an intoxicated person, a ride in a police car, and Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody?  A rather unique a capella rendition of this classic song. Thank you Robert Wilkinson!  Not the best rendition I’ve heard, but very entertaining.

The Circle of Life!

August 11, 2016

I still remember when I first saw the Lion King animated movie and first heard this song. It gave me goosebumps!  Then to attend the Broadway play, it gave me goosebumps again. Now, a quasi-acapella arrangement (some percussive instruments used) . . . simply awesome.  Enjoy!

Yes, the movie has been in theaters for a couple of months now, but can a true fan ever get enough?  Here are a couple of musical medleys that are sure to brighten your day  . . . a vocal, a cappella version (I have long been a fan of a cappella), and a violin a la light saber version.  Enjoy!

Happy National Anthem Day!

March 3, 2015

On this date in 1931, the Star Spangled Banner officially became the National Anthem of the United States of America!  Here are a couple of fun facts regarding this anthem . . .

  • written by Francis Scott Key
  • written on September 14, 1814 (yes, during the War of 1812, NOT during the Revolutionary War).
  • it was originally written as a poem called “Defense of Fort M’Henry”
  • all verses end with “the land of the free and the home of the brave”
  • motto referenced in the song: “In God Is Our Trust”
  • Key’s song was sung publicly for the first time on October 19, 1814.

Here’s a one-man a capella version  . . .  enjoy!

Amazing Indeed!

Here is an a capella rendition of “Amazing Grace” (courtesy of Celtic Thunder) that is truly wonderful.  I love this song, and I love a capella, so this is a double love.  Enjoy!
