This week, I’ll be writing about some a cappella songs I like. I’m sorry this week doesn’t have a catchy tagline like “Get Pitch Slapped.”
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been a sucker for boy bands. (This shouldn’t be a surprise; I grew up in the early Max Martin era, have an ear for well-crafted pop, and was a deeply uncool child.)
However, Boyz II Men was a bit before my time. And, to be honest, some of the production on their songs sounds a little bit dated to me, which has made it difficult for me to really get into their discography. (“End of the Road” is undeniably great, though.)
That said it’s no surprise to me that I love all of their a cappella tracks. The harmonies are stunning, and “In the Still of Nite” in particular has one of those classic melodies that is timeless. No wonder it’s a standard.
