Deke Sharon : Songs from Pitch Perfect 2 for Female Voices
Review: The second Pitch Perfect movie was an even bigger hit than the first and the songs are just as catchy.

Sing the arrangement that the Bellas sang, wardrobe malfunction optional. Songs include We Got the World, Timber, America, The Beautiful, and Wrecking Ball."Bellas Finale " - As in the first movie, this mashup weaves together several great songs and storylines from throughout the film, with a twist of an ending. Songs include Run The World (Girls), Where Them Girls At, We Belong, We Got The World, and Flashlight."Bellas Back to Basics" - The Bellas have lost their sound, and to find it again they sing this medley of some of the greatest and most iconic women's harmony groups from the past, from the Andrew's Sisters to En Vogue. Songs include Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, You Can't Hurry Love, Lady Marmalade, and My Lovin'."Cups" - The trailer for the highly anticipated Pitch Perfect 2 gives us a sneak peek at the music for the new film, including this expanded version of Anna Kendrick's breakout hit Cups.

Mickey Rapkin : Pitch Perfect - The Quest For Collegiate A Cappella Glory
Review: In Pitch Perfect, GQ editor Mickey Rapkin follows a season in collegiate a cappella through all its twists and turns, covering the displays of vocal talent, the groupies (yes, a cappella singers have groupies), the rockstar partying (and run-ins with the law), and all the bitter rivalries. Along the way are encounters with boldfaced names such as President George W. Bush, Prince, David Letterman, Barack Obama, Barbra Streisand, Hillary Clinton, Marisa Tomei, Amanda Bynes, Nick Lachey, Merv Griffin, Jim Carrey, Microsoftas Paul Allen, John Legend, and Jessica Biel. At the heart of the narrative are three a cappella groups whose interactions are anything but harmonious: the historic Tufts Beelzebubs, founded more than forty years ago with 40,000 albums sold since and struggling to record a new album that lives up to the hype; Divisi of the University of Oregon, a relatively new, all-female group attempting to overcome a loss in the 2005 championship; and the University of Virginia Hullabahoos, the so-called bad boys of collegiate a cappella, who will attempt to compete on a higher level this year while retaining their casual soul. Bringing a lively new twist to Americaas fascination with talent showdowns and peerless performers, Pitch Perfect is sure to strike a chord with readers.
