It’s been a while since we booted up a computer running Windows XP or Vista, but the memories came flooding back as soon as we clicked play on this clip from Korean a capella group MayTree, who sang some of memorable sounds from Microsoft’s early-2000s operating systems. Their Movie Intro Medley is a hoot too.
THE BEST A Capella
Vocalist Jared Halley is an expert at creating multi-track recordings of his own voice, demonstrating his excellent vocal range and harmonic abilities. Sure, we’ve heard dozens of covers of A-Ha’s 1985 hit Take on Me, but we’re still not sick of it, so here you go.
Musician Jared Halley demonstrates his impressive vocal range and skill by performing all of the parts of Queen’s 1976 classic Somebody to Love, from Freddie Mercury’s lead vocals, to the layered choral parts, to the instrumentation. Be sure to check out his many other a capella tracks on his YouTube channel.
After impressing us with his vocalization of Star Wars theme, singer Matthew Van Ness is back with another multi-track a capella cover of a John Williams track, this time taking on the familiar main theme from Jurassic Park, and again performing all of the instrumental parts with his voice. The only thing missing is the dinosaurs.
The talented vocalists of Serbia’s Viva Vox present a fantastic cover medley of John Williams’ classic score, including Fox Fanfare, Star Wars Main Title, The Force Theme, Rebel Fanfare, The Imperial March, Cantina Band, Princess Leia’s Theme and Duel of the Fates
The Warp Zone celebrates Star Trek: Discovery with a fun medley of themes from The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise. Though we really wanted to hear the lyric “It’s been a long road, getting from there to here…“
If you haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 yet, get yourself to a theatre now. It’s awesome. In the meantime, sit back and enjoy this 3-minute medley of a few of the classic ’70s tunes from the soundtrack, performed by The Warp Zone and Chad Neidt.
The Warp Zone and MatPat take on the theme song from the awesomely dark and hilarious Netflix series A Series of Unfortunate Events. Seriously though, if you haven’t watched this series yet, drop what you’re doing for the next 8 hours and look away right now.
The Warp Zone serves up a box of defrosted Eggos, and performs another one of their instrument-free covers, this time taking on this summer’s breakout Netflix hit dressed in appropriate garb. The Matthew Modine wig is perfect, but we prefer Dustin’s other t-shirt.
And here we thought the polka version of Rammstein’s 1997 metal track Du Hast was the wackiest version we’d ever hear. But this is the internet, and where there’s a will there’s a way. So sit back and enjoy this silly interpretation of the track as performed by Viva Vox.
