Our friends from Pentatonix are coming to Sesame Street on February 7th… but we couldn’t wait to share the song with you!
MY CHILDHOOD. (I can’t even tell you how much I lived for those pinball sequences as a kid.)
I feel like a very good chunk of you are going to enjoy this…
I am disappoint we didn’t get Avi or Kevin doing Olaf’s summer song, but —
These ridiculous loveable NERDS. I adore Pentatonix so much.
Awesome alt violinist Lindsey Stirling and a capella group Pentatonix cover Imagine Dragons’ “Radioactive” using nothing but their voices, a cello and a violin.
Yes, that dude is beatboxing and playing the cello at the same time.
I’ve been absolutely addicted to this song for some time now
Art. No other words needed.
Whenever PTX covers a song I like it way better than the original.
Word to this. Only I heard the PTX version of “Radioactive” first, and now every time the original comes on I’m sad that there is no cello and violin, plus, you know, their VOICES.
(Though my favorite part of this video is Avi hitting the brick wall with a stick.)
(Also, the scarf-flip.)
Pentatonix: The Dog Days are Over (by LOTR4ever1)
Jo, have you heard this?
I’m not a proper Florence & the Machine fan yet, so I wasn’t familiar with this particular song, and even having listened to it a number of times I can’t decide if I like it.
However, there is something extraordinary about this particular version. Not just because it’s a brilliant performance, but because at certain key points, namely :56, 1:05, 1:52 and 2:00 in this particular video, I get rippling chills up the backs of my legs and spine. Something about those notes, or those harmonies, does that to me every single time.
The Rescues’ cover of “Teenage Dream” has a similar effect on me as well. And again, it’s not because I love the song - though it is a great arrangement.
A mild case of musical-tactile synesthesia? I dunno.
