Top 10 Acapella Performances on YouTube

OK, I goota admit, I truely love Acapella Music. This is kind of music build up by the most basic instrument we got, our voice. So I gonna praise this fuckin' big style of perfoming music with this top 10:

#10 Golden Overtone - Mercy by Duffy
Well, al about pretty standart, but a cool performance, which actually is pretty raw among these types of singing

#9 Rusty Pipes - Ain't no mountain high enough by Marvin Gaye
Well sung by these people and a cool ending, but I think this greate song could be aranged a liitle bit better. Actually I couldn't find a better version on youtube.

#8 UC Men's Octet - 500 Miles by The Proclaimers
Really greate performance an this song just rocks!

#7 UC Men's Octet - Billy Jean by Michael Jackson
The greates background sounds I've ever heard

#6 Golden Overtone - It's in his kiss by Aretha Franklin
Just the perfect song or these girls an a killer arangement. The lead singer rocks the house. Sicerly, women are always a liitle bit worse then men cause they can't reach the really low bass tones, which is neccessary for acapelly singing. But this performance is the best I've ever seen from women.

#5 Accafellas - Wonderfull Tonight by Eric Clapton with Proposal
One of my all time favourit song greate performed. The Part for the Proposal is just killer. I like these guys so much because their arangements are so much on point.

#4 Boys 2 Men - End of the Road
Well, if you want to get in a girls pants this song works ALL THE TIME. The voices of this guys are so perfect and fitted together. Killer arangement.

#3 UW Redefined - Nintendo Medlay
How awesome is that. Reminds me of my younger days. Killer arangement, killer perfomrance, killer singing. I love this one.

#2 UC Men's Octet - Bohemian Rapsody by Queen
Well, this song is prett much made to be sung acapella. These guys are doin' it in perfection.

#1 Miami University Men's Orchestra - Halleluja by Leonard Cohen
I love this song, but how this one is aranged, I could not see a better one. It's so though to this for so many people. You really have to give these guys some credit for this beautifull piece of art.

Mentionable Honor:

UW Redefined - Afica by Toto
These guys always have greate backgrounds. Just didn't made the cut. But I love this song so much, so I have to mention it. Sadly some wrong notes and chords. The guy how's singing the high parts should do the song.

Extendin the Foreigner

Hi Pals,

Last week I tried the Foreigner, and God damn, it works great. But it's maybe not the best idea to perform this move in your regular bar. Of course I#m heading there tonight, but maybe the girl I did last week will be there, too. I think I can't hold on to the show forever. So, I got to make a statement tonight an tell her the truth if I meet her tonight. I'll try to isolate her and tell her outside. The last thing I can use is beeing humiliated in front of the crowd. Keep on checking this, we'll see how this will work out.
But a confrontation wouldn't be so bad, it gives me a chance to try my conflict resolving tools.

See ya soon

Experiment SUCCEEDED

On my very first post I told you about the "Foreigner", a great move to get girls. It's kind of pretending you are from a different country and do not know anything about the place you are. Yesterday I performed it in perfection. At my regular bar I met a guy from USA. We talked about football and had a lot of booze. So he came up with the idea I pretend beeing an American and see if we can pick up some girls. So I came up with my best texan accent and tried not to catch somebodys eye who knows me. We sat next to two reall cute girls and talk to them. The most exciting thing was that they completly bought into the mascerade and talked on german about us with us sitting next to them. Of course I could understand every single word. We had a lot of fun. Then a female friend of these girls came up, want to see our ID Cards. So I ran to the bathroom, of course I don't have any American ID Card or Drivers License. The bar closes and we went to a Diner nearby and I talked a lot to girl hittin' us in the bar. And now guess who's got a private german Lesson ...

I just saw the movie "The Last Temptation of Christ" and I can tell you one thing, it's one of the best movies I've ever seen. The timespan where Jesus got saved from the cross by an angel till everything collapses is the most honest truth about beeing Christian. No matter if Jesus really died at the cross and came back 3 days later or not, it's the faith in God making this happen what makes you believe. If you truelly believe nobody can make you don't believe cause believing is something you do because of your inner attidude towards life. That's nothing somebody can talk you out with logic becaus your faith is not based on logic arguments, it's something you feel in you. So beeing Christian is not based on Jesus rebirth, more than it's based on the principals Jesus talked about and believing in a God who could make Jesus rebirth happen.

An by the way, how greate is William Dafoe in thi flic. What a Genius ...
