I saw a neat video of a group called Pentatonix, the video is called Evolution of Music where they sang a medley of songs from 11th Century, 1600's to 2010's and they performed they songs a capella.
Being a lover of music, I know I just have to share the video on my blog, so here it is.

I won't deny I recognized Barbara Ann in the 1960's portion. I was surprised though that La Bamba was in the 1950's.
Anyway, music from whatever year is always great for me.
Although I wish there'll be more sensible songs written these days.
