Blog Wars: Vienna Boys remix

By Gus Bode

The Vienna Boys’ Choir lit up Shryock as part of its world renowned tour. What song would you like to hear the Vienna Boys’ Choir do a rendition of?

Luke McCormick

The obvious answer here is J-Kwon’s ‘Tipsy’. Hearing the range of the choir’s voices re-do Mr. Kwon’s look at the perils of teen drinking would be superb.


Hearing the young gentleman from Vienna’s soaring voices sing the classic lines, ‘I wonder if a shake come with them fries, if so baby can I get ’em super-sized?’ would be worth the price of admission alone.

I can’t really suggest anything from the classics, because I think any one of those 10-to-14 year old boys knows more about classical music than me; I fail in that genre. If they’re looking to expand their pop repertoire, though, I think they should sing Road to Nowhere by Talking Heads.’ The first two quatrains are already fleshed out into a four-part harmony, and the lyrics would be very fitting for a traveling children’s choir.

In honor of their distant cousin Oscar Meyer, Vienna Beef Hot Dog Choir should sing, ‘Oh I wish I were an Oscar Meyer weiner…’

I want to hear some music that will really get a crowd rockin’. I think the Vienna Boys’ Choir should draw inspiration from the tremendous a cappella performance of ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’ in the movie ‘Step Brothers.’ They should sing ‘Crossfire’ by Stevie Ray Vaughan, but since Vaughan was never much of a singer, they should just do an arrangement of his awesome guitar solo. I know I would be entertained to watch a bunch of young lads play some air guitar in unison as they deliver their best vocal guitar effect.
