I’m a big fan of projects like this. I think it’s super important to know what people jammed out to a generation or 3 ago. We tend to have a stiff impression of people from the past, but I think it’s really cool to hear what the party or popular music was back then. Sometimes it’s inspiring, sometimes it’s wacky, and sometimes it’s damn applicable to the present day. Pentatonix takes us through an extensive & entertaining 4.5min of vocal glory. Some of your favorite songs come up, and I had no idea when some of these actually came out, because I don’t actually know things, I just use the Google goodly. Fun little video to help you run the workweek’s clock out, and if you need more of their acapella stylings, check out their YouTube channel here.
This kind of annotated video isn’t something we see very often, but just in case you wanted a little refresher on the origins of the music you’ll be dancing to all summer, check Eclectic Method‘s video out. People generally never remember it, or cleverly forget it when they’ve lifted something profitable from the past (coughrobinthickecough). While it’s a little light on the morass of darkness, just in case you wanted something a little more geeky fun, I’ve got a bonus video from Eclectic Method just on lightsabers. Because, when you’re as good as the Eclectic Method at video editing, you can make a music video from pretty much any sound you want. Check it & more of his projects out at his site.
