Beautiful Day

Music by U2

Originally Performed by U2

"Beautiful Day" is a song by the Irish rock band U2. It is the first track from their 2000 album, All That You Can't Leave Behind, and it was released as the album's lead single. It was a commercial success, helping launch the album to multi-platinum status, and is U2's biggest hit to date. Like many tracks from All That You Can't Leave Behind, "Beautiful Day" harkens back to the group's past sound. The tone of the Edge's guitar was a subject of debate amongst the band members, as they disagreed on whether he should use a sound similar to that from their early career in the 1980s. Lead singer Bono explained that the upbeat track is about losing everything but still finding joy in what one has.

The song received positive reviews, and it became their fourth number-one single in the UK and their first number-one in the Netherlands. The song peaked at number 21 in the United States, the band's highest position since "Discothèque" in 1997. In 2001, the song won three Grammy Awards for Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. The group has played "Beautiful Day" at every one of their concerts since the song's 2001 live debut on the Elevation Tour.

Fork : Cover To Cover : 00  1 CD

Fork : Cover To Cover

Their band, according to Fork: "Fork does to a cappella what Jimi Hendrix did to guitar music and what Viagra does to a man!" Three actors and a policeman were talking about forming a band in a Helsinki apartment in 1996 and the instruments they could play were not compatible with starting a rock band, but they realized that they could all sing! Since then Fork has made their own arrangements of about 50 rock and pop songs, from Bon Jovi and Michael Jackson to Robbie Williams, U2 and Whitney Houston. In live performances the group enters the stage like international divas, becoming their alter egos Chiq LaDesire, Miles Precious, Winston Chill and Angel d'Ville, shake their booties and sing to amazing pyrotechnics, and then they blow audiences away. Fork released their debut "Cover to Cover" in September of 2005, and it is as good and groundbreaking as we could have imagined. 10 covers, "You give love a bad name," the medley "Can't a loop," "Smooth criminal," "Beautiful day," "You oughta know," "God is a dj," "Livin' la vida loca," "My love is your love," "Kids" and "Politik." You will recognize these covers, while being amazed at what Fork is doing to them, where "Vogue" can segue into "Ice, Ice, Baby" and then "Walk this Way" and it all makes perfect sense. The synthesizer-solid vocal percussion and background vocals create kind of a "wall of a cappella sound" that must be heard to be truly appreciated. Basically what we're saying here is: whether you need to study it, react to it or simply love it, Fork is in a cappella, it has changed and we like it!

Songlist: You Give Love a Bad Name, Can't A Loop, Smooth Criminal, Beautiful Day, You Oughta Know, God is a DJ, Livin' The Vida Loca, My Love Is Your Love, Kids, Politik

Fork : Helsinki : 00  1 CD

Fork : Helsinki

Two men and two women, 3 actors and a policeman from Finland, first got together in 1996, lacking the instrumental talent to form a rock band, but discovered that they were all powerful singers. Since then they have been doing their own arrangements of rock and pop songs, performing live like rock divas (complete with their own alter egos) and creating an a cappella "wall of sound" with rock solid vocal percussion and background vocals that blows the minds of audiences and reviewers like ourselves alike! There are 13 dynamic cuts here, some re-covers of cuts they performed on "Cover To Cover," their debut album: the rock/pop medley "Can't A Loop," "You Oughta Know," the rhythmic gem "Kids," the manic "Smooth Criminal" and very fine "Beautiful Day." Other favorites are the driving rock anthem "Taiva Lyo Tulta/Over The Hills," "My Sin," the lovely "Circle Round the Sun," the haunting "Try To Forget Me" and the dreamlike "Common State of Mind." We love that Fork has turned themselves into rock stars with names like Chiq LaDesire and Winston Chill, we love that they can blow away a stadium with just their voices, and we love "Helsinki," an unbelievably entertaining collection of their best stuff. Enough said!

Songlist: Intro, Taivas Lyo Tulta/Over the Hills, My Sin, Can't A Loop, You Oughta Know, Circle 'Round the Sun, Kids, Smooth Criminal, Another Day, Beautiful Day, Try to Forget Me, Leave Me Alone, Common State of Mind

Six : Life Is A Highway

If there is ever to be an A Cappella Hall Of Fame then these talented brothers should surely be one of the first inductees. The Knudsens started singing when very young and got their first big break when in 1978 they first performed on the Donnie and Marie TV show where they went on to become regular guests. Now they must be one of the hardest working groups in a cappella as they recently completed their 7th year of performing six (usually sold out) shows a week in Branson, Missouri. This is their first CD is over 10 years and the wait was well worthwhile as they clearly demonstrate why they are so popular on this wonderful recording. With tight arrangements, fun song selection and some of the best sibling harmony in the business this is a recording you will be playing for years to come.

Songlist: Life Is A Highwaay, Don't Stop Believin', Jump, Rock Dream Medley, Beautiful Day, Boyfriend, Coldplay Medley, Without You, With or Without You, Carry On Wayward Son, Jessie's Girl, You Make Me Feel Brand New, Motown Medley, Beach Boy Medley, Frankie Valli Medley, Unchanied Melody

Various Artists : The Sing-Off - Best of Season 2

Since the couple of months in the Spring of 2008 that producers from NBC followed Primarily A Cappella's John Neal around and their camera crews filmed the Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Finals in San Rafael, CA, the a cappella world has gone through some big changes. The Sing-Off showed off the Sweeps' brand of exciting, unique mixed-genre a cappella competition to new studio audiences and millions of new Primetime tv viewers. Harmony Sweeps Finals veterans like Face and MAXX Factor were showing off their stuff, and the first year's champion was Nota, whose three core members performed as Alpha at the '04 Sweeps Finals. "The sing-off, The Best of Season 2" features 2005 Sweeps champs Groove for Thought, and these 11 songs, like "Beautiful Day" by all the sing-off contestants, "Apologize" by 1st place winners Committed, Radiohead's "Creep" by Street Corner Symphony, Stevie Nicks' "Landslide" by The Backbeats, Jerry Lawson & Talk of the Town's "Mercy," Eleventh Hour's "Baby," Groove for Thought's "Cooler Than Me," The Yale Whiffenpoofs' "Grace Kelly," Pitch Slapped's "Good Girls Go Bad," Men of Note's "Take a Bow" and On The Rocks' "The Final Countdown" simply underscores how much vocal talent has been assembled here for all to see and hear. Buy "The Best of Season 2" and listen to a cappella take off like a harmonious, vocal percussioning rocket on national TV!

Songlist: Beautiful Day, Apologize, Creep, Landslide, Mercy, Baby, Cooler Than Me, Grace Kelly, Good Girls Go Bad, Take A Bow, The Final Countdown

Vox Audio : Voice Activated

Orlando, FL-based 3-man, 2 Women Vox Audio, formerly Toxic Audio, who jumped fro the 1998 Orlando Fringe Festival to featured Disney performers, to 2000 Harmony Sweeps Champs, were on a huge roll, and it has kept going: their "Chemistry" was named 2003 CASA Album of the Year, national tv appearances, and their off-Broadway show in NYC's Houseman Theatre won the 2004 Drama Desk Award for "Unique Theatrical Experience." Officially changing their moniker to Vox Audio with "Voice Activated, the group thanks the name in the liner notes for "13 years of faithful service, we hope you enjoy your condo in Boca!" Toxic Audio's live shows and CDs have always been hilarious, and "Voice Activated" follows suit bigtime: "I Gotta Firework," "Sound Guy," "Go to Bed Early," "I Wish I Could Go Back to College," "Quiet Time" and "Swingin' Low," which features a "Wicked Scat Solo" by Michelle, "Wicked Horn" by Paul and "Wicked Bass" by Trist Curless, are all hilarious. Great, funny stuff by one of our all time favorite a cappella groups!
