About The Yale Spizzwinks(?), The Whiffenpoofs of Yale, MSU Accafellas... and platonic love.

(all the videos mentioned are listed at the end of the post)
(and, man... I´m sorry for the mispelling... but I`m in no mood to correct every damn thing)

Once upon a time... a movie called Sister Act 2. And the songs they sang in the movie. There I was, looking for videos of one of my favorite soundtracks ever, and Youtube was always there to help me. I found a nice version of "Joyful Joyful" by the ACM Gospel Choir. Which lead me to a nice version of "Circle of Life" by Ysgol Glana ethwy. I watched all the Ysgol Glanaethwy's I wonder how the hell they pronunciate that videos and fell in love with choirs.

Then, probably at Twitter, I came across a link to this video of Lady Gaga's "Poker Face" by Noteworthy. THAT was fun. I ended up watching all of Noteworthy's videos. Completely in love with a capella style, I started diggin the related videos for more opportunities to find nice a capella groups. Then, I found this version of "Livin' on a prayer" by the Columbia University's Nonsequitur. OMFG, I loved that soloist's voice. It sounded just soooo sweet to me.

And, after hundreds I´m probably not lying of a capella videos, after watching the Nonsequitur's version of "Livin' on a prayer" for the tenth time that day, I found THEM. They were always right there, in the form of a related video. The MSU Accafellas. Their version of "Livin' on a prayer" drove me crazy. For their singing and for their ability to make me laugh out loud watching an a capella group singing. Then, I got to watch their version of "Hallelujah", and there HE was. I feel in love with Rusty Broughton and his messy red hair instantly. From that moment on, things started getting creepy... I looked for all possible videos with Rusty, and my favorite ones were "When you were young" and the "Boy Band Medley". I watched ALL the MSU Accafellas' videos available in Youtube, even the repeated songs... I laughed out loud with "Under Pressure" - Kyle and Andy are sooooooo damn cute.

Then, there was a link in Twitter the other day. A boy singing Michael Jackson's songs. He was the famous Sam Tsui. You won´t find a link to his video in the end of the post, because... well, the video was nice, but it really didn´t... you know... catch me. Then, there THEY were, as a related video... The Yale Spizzwinks(?) singing "Billie Jean". WTH? Guys in tux singing "Billie Jean"? I gave it a chance and... OMFG, it was AWESOME!!! Jamie was so funny and awesome! I couldn´t believe it!

But if I were to say when I definitely fell in love with The Yale Spizzwinks(?), that moment would be watching Brennan Caldwell perform "Pinball Wizard". G-zus... Lord!  The way he walked to the mic, the way he performed that song and, OMG, his looks... It was his fault I started listening to The Who again! And then came the fucking great "Grace Kelly" and "On Broadway" by Brennan again. And the D-LICIOUS "Landed" performed by the gorgeous Alec Torres. What is that sigh when she sings "So come pick me up... (sigh)... I´ve landed". I WILL GO AND I WILL PICK YOU UP ALEEEEEC!!! Sam also sings it, but my favorite version is with Alec and his style. And Sam Bolen is so sweet in "I´m yours". Actually, all of the Spizzwinks are cute. Of course we have our favorite ones, and they are Brennan/Sam/Alec/Scott. And Ryan Dailey could totally play the older Harry Potter, you know... some years after the Battle of Hogwarts.

Then I knew some of the Spizzwinks were now part of the Whiffenpoofs: Brennan, Scott and Calixto, for instance... and there I was... watching all of their videos... And then I fell in love with Ben Wexler... What can I do??? He´s a redhaired!!!  And he seems to be sooo shy!!!

I happened to watch the most of the videos at caldwellj channel at Youtube... and I recommend them all.

Later, I found out that the Whiffenpoofs had just took part in a kind of TV competition called "Sing Off", but didn´t make it til the end. I happened to watch their video of Grace Kelly at the competition. Must confess I got angry because... you know... there´s always someone stupid to tell you that you just like the guys because they´ve been to a TV show. ¬¬

Well... whatever... one of the coolest things I´ve got from this a capella stuff was getting to know awesome songs like "When you were young" (The Killers), "Landed" (Ben Folds), "Grace Kelly" (Mika), "Sugar we´re goin' down" (Fall out boy)... besides revisiting Under Pressure (Queen) and Pinball Wizard (The Who).

Well, enough with that... These three are my favorite a capella groups because because! I spend hours "foreveralone" watching their videos on Youtube, paying attention to each and every member of the group... because apparently I have nothing better to do at night... and isn´t that just sad????
