Following on from the Simon & Garfunkel song “Old Friends” that I posted a few days ago, as the next song(s) in the ongoing musical sequence I thought I would add a couple of my favourite S & G covers. Let me know what you make of them …
The first is from Pentatonix, an American acappella group from Texas formed in 2011. They won the third season of NBC’s The Sing-Off, receiving $200,000 and a recording contract with Sony Music.
They create their own arrangements of pop songs with intricate vocal harmonies, basslines, riffing, percussion and beatboxing.
Their YouTube channel currently has over 17 million subscribers and 4 billion views. The group’s video tribute to Daft Punk had received over 327 million views as of April 2020.
Have you seen it yet ? If not … Here it is … Enjoy !
