A-Cup-ella? :-)
Wow, many important things to note here...
First, writing/arranging an acappella piece is its own great accomplishment, and you did a super job here...

Then your singing all the parts is also great... I just "SATB" here listening in amazement :-) Wow. Off to tell a few other people to come listen to this. Love the little vocal sound effects too. The ambient crowd noise was so-so, I was more interested in the singing. Faved!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Yea, this is very well done. It's amazing how many different ranges, tessituras and colours that you can get out of just your voice. Drink up!

No - it's no advertisement (even when I have to admit it sounds like a promotion for starbucks). It's just a fun-arrangement that I had made a couple of years ago for an a cappella group (8 men). I sang with them then. And now I've arranged it new - just for me singing all voices multitrack :-)

This
is a fantastic example of a tune entirely without an instrumental support (except those few flute squeaks), but which at the same time in intensity and richness sounds like a whole orchestra. So my question is, do we really need all those electric guitars, basses, keyboards, violins, fagots, harps, drum sets, traverse flutes and all that crap?! ;)
Fantastic clear and amazingly melodic harmonies Andreas.
A masterpiece...
love it!

Amazing
you are all these voices? That's so cool, and no easy feat I'm sure. I agree with ashleybeanhead - I love this tune even more than coffee (which is saying a LOT!!) (Cause usually you separate me from my coffee at your own risk!) Thanks

Sweet...

.. very cool. I admire that barber-shop singing ..
well cool. Reminded me a little of some music Bobby McFerrin did for a Pixar short film called "Knick knack" in spots. Wicked fun.

Thanks for sharing.

Percolating
Coffee song wars -- I lose! I thought I thought Mister Frap and I had done the definitive coffee song but you come along and dance all over our sad home brew. Really amazing, Andreas. Crystal clear exposition. Neat and lifting.

I have a version, too
(unposted) and it's a cappella as well. What do you make of that?!

Great song.

Great arrangement and stellar performance. I'm feeling pretty jealous right now. Thanks for this.

I saw your
name floating around icomps many times , but never bothered to listen.
I guess even fried hard drives have serendipitous effects sometimes. I love your stuff a lot. It's excellent. So I guess Im glad icomps blew up momentarily otherwise I may have nevered bothered to listen to your music. Regards

coffee
My only qualm is that in the song you sing about coffee AND tea. Now, I like tea and drink it quite often but I'm addicted to coffee. To me, coffee and tea are totally in different classes and it should stay that way. That said, enjoyed your voice(s) on this very much - nice job!
