Virtual Insanity

Music by Jay Kay and Toby Smith

Originally Performed by Jamiroquai

"Virtual Insanity" is a song by British funk band Jamiroquai. It was released as the second single from their third studio album, Travelling Without Moving (1996), on 19 August 1996. It interpolates parts of Jocelyn Brown's post-disco hit Somebody Else's Guy (1984). The song's award-winning music video was released in September 1996. "Virtual Insanity" was a number-one hit in Iceland and reached number three on the UK Singles Chart. Peaking within the top 10 in Finland and Ireland, the song also peaked at number 38 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart upon the single's release in the US in 1997. The sight of underground town in Sapporo, 2020 provided inspiration to this song

    Release Date: 1996

Montezuma's Revenge : In Pursuit Of Pleasure : 00  1 CD

Montezuma's Revenge : In Pursuit Of Pleasure

Hip Dutch group Montezuma's Revenge is back with this simply-produced contemporary recording. Allowing the songs and lead vocals center stage, the five men of Montezuma take on pop hits as well as lesser-known compositions from familiar artists, such as Prince's "Sometimes It Snows In April" and John Lennon's "Mother," in addition to self-penned originals (the sexy "I'm da 1-4-U"). "Plateau" has a hypnotic repeating minor-third accompaniment that drives the verse; the swirling descent of notes that are the setting of "Sometimes It Snows" are a modern tone-painting. The radio-friendly "Virtual Insanity" (Jamiroquai) lends itself well to this a cappella version; anyone who has heard the chorus once will recognize it instantly. This CD reveals more with each listen.

Songlist: In The House Of Stone And Light, Nightshift, Calling You, What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted, I'm Da 1-4-U, Plateau, Mother, Sometimes It Snows In April, No More I Love You's, Virtual Insanity, Decent And Distant

Mt. San Antonio College - Singopation : Drive : 00  1 CD : Bruce Rogers

Mt. San Antonio College - Singopation : Drive

Mt. Sac's dynamic ensemble Singcopation, founded in 1997 by Director of Choral Activities Bruce Rogers, consists of 12 auditioned male and female student vocal jazz specialists. These exceptional singers have taken home a variety of trophies from vocal jazz competitions, been named "Most Outstanding College Vocal Jazz Group in the Country" by Downbeat. On the 14 generally accompanied (Piano, Drums & Bass) tunes of "Drive," Singcopation shows us a level of sophistication and polish rarely found at the college level. Particularly fine are Steve Allen's "This Could be the Start of Something Big," the scatty, salsa-flavored "Virou Areia," the sexy, silly, nearly a cappella "I Feel So Smoochie," a very cool arrangement of "Nature Boy," Bobby McFerrin's sweet a cappella (of course) title tune, a moody cover of Lennon/McCartney's "In My Life," John Coltrane's "Moment's Notice," a smooth, rhythmic cover of Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Corcovado," and very nice vocal percussion on the a cappella "Virtual Insanity." We are big fans of Singcopation, and enjoyed every cut of "Drive!"

Songlist: This Could Be The Start Of Something Big, Minuano, Not Like This, Virou Areia, Don't Be On The Outside, I Feel So Smoochie, Nature Boy, Drive, In My Life, Moments' Notice, Corcovado, Snow Samba, Virtual Insanity, I Want You Back
