  7. lighten up guys. It was fun. It's the power of the music and how it makes you feel.

  8. I actually think the highly produced (some would say overproduced) and gently enhanced "acapella" sounds of Warblers on GLEE has ruined some of the enjoyment of these sorts of things. This is what most acapella reinterpetation of pop songs sound like, and have almost always sounded like. And it's always been fun. Now the Warblers stuff on GLEE is mindblowing, but it's also produced, tweaked, and enhanced, and with a single, powerhouse solo lead, and a cast of dozens (actual and digitially replicated, when necessary) backing that solo lead up, the coverage is amazing. When it's a solo lead, and the group is comprised of a group much like this one (later enhanced by a number of other professional singers chosen for their singing ability to fill the numbers out) it's always going to sound amazing and professional, and the weaknesses of the group at large are lost as the only person singing the melody line is a vetted soloist with the best/better voice and an individually produced, if necessary, track. This is how I remember these fun acapella interpretations being--with groups of people, some stronger than others, singing the melody while maybe 5-10 divided up the "background music." Now I listen to it and it sounds weak and unpolished. Went back on YouTube and watched some of my favorites and they sound weak and unpolished. Realized it's because thanks to GLEE I have an expectation now as to the "quality" a pop reimagining will have. Only, like a lot of things the industry produces, that quality was never attainable by mortals to start with.

  9. More of a catalogue of what Danish people were listening to in the 1990s than what the 1990s were actually about. And wow, Danish people really know how to make everything basically the same.

  10. You're all crazy. The "What Is Love" section was AMAZING.
