Evolution of Music

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.

Just in case you're wondering what were some of the songs you don't recognize, here's a list of the songs as posted on their YouTube link:

11th century-
Salve Regina

Canon in D - Pachelbel

Symphony No. 5 - Beethoven

Danny Boy - Frederic Weatherly

Old Man River - Jerome Kern & Oscar Hammerstein II

Minnie The Moocher - Cab Calloway

Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy - The Andrew Sisters

I Walk The Line - Johnny Cash
La Bamba - Ritchie Valens

Stand By Me - Ben E King
Barbara Ann - Beach Boys
I Want To Hold Your Hand - The Beatles
Respect - Aretha Franklin

ABC - Jackson 5
Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

Celebration - Kool & The Gang
Don't Stop Believin' - Journey
Thriller - Michael Jackson

Can't Touch This - MC Hammer
...Baby One More Time - Britney Spears
Say My Name - Destiny's Child
I Want It That Way - The Backstreet Boys

Hey Ya! - Outkast

Crazy - Gnarls Barkley
Hips Don't Lie - Shakira
Single Ladies - Beyoncé

Bad Romance - Lady Gaga

Baby - Justin Bieber

Some Nights - Fun.
Somebody That I Used To Know - Gotye

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.
