Completely braindead; be amused by ambitious college students [May. 3rd, 2010|11:28 am]

Got this from mariness. It hits lots of triggers for me:

1. Lady Gaga
2. A capella
3. Done at my alma mater, University of Oregon!
4. Sneaks in a nod to another song, so a bit of mashup
5. Thriller dance steps

So I think it's completely awesome:

I heart it very much. Their rickrolling a NYC subway is amusing but sort of sad, since the riders don't ever loosen up.

That was so odd- when I clicked to watch the embedded video it showed me Ke$ha's Tik Tok as performed by the Simpsons characters.

Huh. Must be a glitch; it loads just fine when I click it!

I think so. When I'm viewing this post I can see the proper video, but on my friends list its Ke$ha. Weird!

My friend's brother just graduated from UofO and On the Rocks, he was one of the soloists (he also wrote their SnowBalls song, and was one of the main singers for "Never Gonna Give You Up") while he was there. I've seen them in concert and they are amazing.

My sister lives in Eugene, and one day we were walking across the campus when I heard music. So we followed the sound to a concert given by "On The Rocks."

It was a real treat.

My sister is now a huge OTR fan.

Also, my nephew was just accepted into their graduate music program.

I actually enjoyed this more than the original song. I quite like the original, but any good a capella makes me squee. :)

I have a deep and abiding love for a capella, including devotion to old school Rockapella.
