CDZA, the group that brought us 50 years of nonsense lyrics and 98 years of whistling in pop music, has just released a version of Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World” which they performed in 16 different genres from the history of western music. So whether you like Gregorian chant or Dubstep, at least a couple seconds of this song should be right up your alley…

      Yeah, and other times two styles sounded identical or nothing like the genre on the card.

      A well executed idea wouldn’t need cards or subtitles telling the viewer what genre is being performed.

        Except for the fact that some people might not know what all the styles are, so that could remain helpful.

        I agree with you first comment too though.
