Episode 45

January 30, 2008 on 5:43 pm | In Episodes | No Comments

By (apparently) popular demand, we’re trying out a new condensed (read: no talking) show format. The last few reviews on iTunes have been un-erringly critical of my yip-yapping, so we’ll see how this goes over - after all, the audience is always right. Tell us what you think, and maybe shoot us a nice review over on iTunes - we need the love!

Blurry (Puddle of Mudd / Chordials)
Ghost (Indigo Girls / Yale Mixed Company)
Walk the Walk (Poe / Virginia Sil’hooettes)
God Is A DJ (Pink / Sil’hooettes)
24 (Jem / Maryland Faux Paz)

Guitar Hero III / Rock Band Episode - We Need Your Help!!!

January 25, 2008 on 5:13 pm | In Announcements | No Comments

Joey C here. So, I thought it would be WAY cool if we could dedicate and entire episode to a cappella versions of songs found in the Rock Band and Guitar Hero III video games, my newest obsession.
Thing is, we only have a few such songs here in the Acappella U data bank, and they’re mostly Weezer and/or Off The Beat.

Please check out the Rock Band songlist and Guitar Hero III songlist. If you have any a cappella versions of these songs, please email us and let us know. Thanks in advance for your help!!

Episode 44

January 21, 2008 on 9:09 pm | In Episodes | No Comments

We know, it’s actually been less than a month, but if our new, er, supporters have their way we’ll be delivering the goods a lot more often. Auditorily scope the new Oregon hotness, aka OSU Outspoken. Mix in some Cornell and you’ve got a hell of an a cappella cocktail, just remember to Sing Responsibly. OK that was lame, but it’s like, 14 degrees out, and our brains are frozen.

“Jesus Walks” (Kanye West / OSU Outspoken)
“Photograph” (Nickelback / Cornell Chordials)
“Free Fallin’” (Tom Petty / Smith Smithereens)
“Eli the Barrow Boy” (The Decemberists / UMBC Mama’s Boys)
“Float On” (Modest Mouse / OSU Outspoken)

Good old a cappella

January 19, 2008 on 9:47 pm | In Blogs | No Comments

Hey there Acappella U fans! My name is Mel Voytovich. Joey is starting a new feature on the website - having guest bloggers post their opinions on various a cappella issues. I have the honors of the first post so read up!

As I sit here staring at the blank page on my computer screen wondering what to write for a first blog entry for Acappella U, my mind is filled with a slew of ideas but there is only one thing I can make myself write about, or maybe I should say rant about. As I go through my a cappella collection on my iTunes list, all but three songs I have rated as five stars have unbelievably perfect pitch and rhythm, and is so produced you sit there thinking “there’s no way they sound this much like a guitar.”
