A Capella Makes Me Incredibly Happy.

…especially when it’s Ben Folds songs.

Ben Folds recently released a collection of amazing a capella covers of his own songs, most of which are performed by college a capella groups (two songs are done entirely by Folds himself). The songs are amazing, but one in particular is beyond mind blowing. The University of Chicago group Voices In Your Head has a version of Magic (from what I understand, a song actually written by Darren Jesse, Ben Folds Five drummer), that is simply astounding. I want to compare it to something, but the only thing that comes close is Eric Whitacre’s music (I know most of you won’t get that reference), something along the lines of Cloudburst or Sleep.

But don’t take my word for it. Give it a listen.
