Quality Control!


I updated the quality on some of my favorite PS22 Chorus videos of the year, as the sound was really muffled on the originally-posted versions. In addition, I'm proud to present an exceptionally beautiful (and my favorite) rendition of "One Day" by Bjork. Maya sings the solo to perfection and the chorus as a whole sounds hauntingly beautiful. UPDATE: Now posted is another gem from earlier this year, "Folk Song" by The Sundays. Nick must have had a lot of sugar in his cereal the morning he filmed this, but if you can get past the motion sickness, it's really an exceptional performance.



"One Day" by Björk (my favorite version)


UPDATE 2 (7-5-09): Perez Hilton just tweeted about the newly posted PS22 Chorus rendition of "One Day" on his twitter page! Thanks to Mr. P for his continued support!



"Folk Song" by The Sundays


"I'll Be Your Mirror" by The Velvet Underground and Nico


"Jóga" by Björk


"Clouds" by Phats & Small


"Let It Go" by The Bangles

the computer im on doesnt have sound and i gave you the wrong email. if i email you will you have the correct one?

Mr. B said...

as is often the case, i STILL have no idea what you're talking about! don't post your e-mail address on your comment, but if you want to e-mail me at ps22chorus@aol.com, i'll help you if i can figure out what you're talking about!! :)

Suz said...

Who do you have accompanying you on guitar? Great sound!

moona said...

i gave you the wrong e-mail i'll email you the correct one

Mr. B said...

i assume you mean on clouds?? that's mr. chris eberle, my friend and the gym teacher! he's the coolest and truly the nicest person you'll ever want to meet! gives up his free time to make music with us, and it adds so much to the songs he joins us on. :)

Suz said...

well yeah.. I kinda recognized the OTHER guitar player ;) ;)

PS 22 is just oozing with talent --teachers and students alike! what luck to find someone with ability and willingness! Mr. Eberle deserves mad props!

Mr. B said...

heartily agree! he's been playing with us really since the beginning. but this year, we really put him to work! he played with us on viva la vida, everybody's changing, clouds, in the bleak midwinter, sky fits heaven, let it go, joga, one day, flavor, 1000 oceans, and probably a few more that i'm not thinking of.... :)

Suz said...

I had seen him on a few but wasn't sure how you pulled him in.... that's quite an arsenal he's worked with ya'll on--great kids and great teachers!

Mr. B said...

luckily for the chorus, chris needs no "pulling in." he's one of those people who just always is around asking what he can do to help, musically or otherwise. great guy. :)

moona said...

i emailed you the correct one

Mr. B said...

cool, i'll check my mailbox in a little while... :)

Suz said...

it takes a village.. and you certainly have that at PS 22!

Mr. B said...

lol, literally.... (we've got a student body of about 1200 or so!)

Suz said...

YIKES-- ya'll must have like 10 classes at each grade! i can't even imagine ~~ good thing everyone gets along so well!

Mr. B said...

we have a BIG faculty. there are some teachers in my building that i don't even know!!
