Taio Cruz - Dynamite
Taio Cruz released Dynamite in 2010. It still is frequently featured on television and the radio, and has a series of catchy hooks that make the song hard to forget. While it has been covered many times, a YouTube user named Mike Tompkins posted a very unique acapella version worth checking out:
Tompkins' version was created using only vocals as an instrument. At the end of the video he goes through the different sounds, adding one on top of the other so listeners can hear how all the individual sounds come together to make a pretty impressive cover version. Acapella groups use a similar technique for cover songs but generally do not attempt to recreate each individual sound from the original version. This version of Dynamite offers some insight into how incredible the human voice is, but also shows some limitations, as it does not have quite the punch that Taio Cruz's original seems to possess.
