Bad Romance, a Capella style

I was going to write about pink compression socks and the subsequent comments one receives upon walking into Target. Yes, I realize my socks are pink. No, I'm not a soccer player.... And so on, and so forth.

However, thanks to Alili, I thought this was much better. Those of you who really know me, know that I'm a sucker for acoustical performances. Though I've never been a huge fan of a Capella, this ensemble takes the proverbial cake.

Without futher ado, "On the Rocks" - the University of Oregon's premiere a Capella group - performs Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance."



And yes, it's okay to admit that 1) you watched it more than once and 2) you were humming along. I know I was (and did). All while wearing pink compression socks, no less.

i'm going to have to show this to lucie in the morning as this is currently her favourite song. she always asks "why doesn't she want to be friends?" and we have to go through several different scenarios every time we hear the song.

Okay, I am not ashamed to admit that I have now seen this same group from Oregon do this same performance in three different locations. I love these guys. I could just watch them over and over and over.

I've been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours as of late, yet I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It's pretty value enough for me.
Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the web will
likely be a lot more helpful than ever before.
