More new tracks in the past couple of weeks!
First, Tonic Sol-Fa
released yet another another full-length CD, Boston to Beijing
(these guys are nothing if not prolific...) and from it I pulled the title track, the great ballad "Chances" and another nice little poppy number, "Rescued Me."
By listener request, the classic Nylons
track "Kiss Him Goodbye" is on the station. Yes, there's a little percussion on the track that doesn't come from a human... but since this song is really one of the cornerstones of popular a cappella, I thought I'd let it slide. :-)
Finally, off their brand new CD An A Cappella Trek
, Voice Trek
gives us two great covers: a fun, loose arrangement of the Beatles' "Ticket to Ride" and Dusty Springfield's "Windmills of Your Mind."
Hey, BIG congratulations to Blue Jupiter
for winning the Oreo jingle national singing contest! Their tune, which we'll get to hear nationally starting November, was chosen after an exhaustive search of hundreds of groups and then ten finalists. Nice job guys! To celebrate, I pulled a couple more tracks off their 2002 CD Ear Candy:
listen for "Sir Duke" and "Wrapped Up In You."
I don't know anything about Popchor Berlin
(how's your German?) besides the fact that they seem to have a good sense of humor... listen for yourself, since they bring us an a cappella cover of Devo's old track "Mongoloid." Don't know the song? The lyrics go something like... "Mongoloid he was a mongoloid / Happier than you and me / Mongoloid he was a mongoloid / And it determined what he could see / Mongoloid he was a mongoloid / One chromosome too many" --etc. :-)
Nice, eh? :-)
More soon-- Eric
