Hugh’s 51 Weeks:51 Songs from the Past, Week 17



This week my song selection was inspired by Ruth at Image & Word. Her post Harmony features an acappella song. It reminded me how much I love acapella. You know someone can actually sing, not just perform to over-synthesized music, if they can sing acapella. The Nylons harmonies are some of the best. The group started in 1979 in Canada; some of the singers changed over time. I saw them perform in the late 80s when I lived in San Francisco. They put on an incredible, energetic show. Up the Ladder to the Roof is performed by The Nylons I saw the first time—Mark, Paul, Arnold, and Claude—The Nylons of their first four albums. When the group retired in 2016, one of the founding members, Claude Morrison, was still performing. I have also included their song about acapella.

Check out Hugh’s 51 Weeks: 51 Songs from the Past, Week 17. Add your own favorites.



music, nostalgia


I love a bit of acapella. You’re right in that it can really show off a singer’s voice.

I got an error message when clicking on the 2nd video saying “This video is not available.” Maybe, it’s not available outside of certain countries?

Thanks for joining in again, Marie.
