Hey Octet fans - it's time for something exciting and new. The UC Men's Octet Archives have just hit YouTube, and the archivist (an Octet Alumni) is sharing classic Octet music with YouTube. Enjoy "Wimoweh (The Lion Sleeps Tonight)" below, and then click on the link (even further below) to enjoy other Octet classics. I am SO excited for this to happen, and I hope you will enjoy all the music to come from this INCREDIBLE group.)
Also, I am going to announce the official 2013-2014 Octet as soon as I know, for sure, who are in the group. I KNOW that we have 2 Kyles, and one of them is an alumni, and American Idol contestant. Oh, yeah. It's gonna be a good year.
I just found out that the Octet will be going to Beijing, and so today only at 1 pm the Sproul performance will be performed by Alumni. I wonder who will be there.
The following videos were posted on YouTube by lulubuddy. There are a lot more, but I've posted my most favorite videos.
I shared the opening video because it had me laughing from start to finish!
My favorite parts are the Octet's attacking position in the Animal Planet sketch and the reintroduction of "Jordante" (Jordan Edwards) in the Octet. Check out the 2003 Spring Show opening video for the original use of Jordante.
It seems that there were some copyright issues with the videos...I'll try to find others to link to. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Something Special is full of energy. Super great!
Rhapsody in Blue and Gold: Berkeley pride. Stanfurd mockery. Musical genius.
Operetic Classical Musical Fun. "You make me laugh..."
A song which is simultaneously Heartless and soulful.
Princess Papuli with the alumni is always awesome!
Great Job Octet!
And fans; let me know what you think of this years Spring Show.
