My eight-year-old great-niece tried to teach me “The Cup Song” rhythm pattern and song. Alas, it is a bit tricky for this AARP card holder. This group in the video does it as an awesome foursome. Outstanding.

Sam, Mee, Tina, and Alex of Perfect Pitch performing “Cups”

Here’s the orignal version sung by Anna Kendrick in the Pitch Perfect film soundtrack, 2012. Beca (Anna Kendrick) freshman at Barden University, auditions for The Bellas, an all-girls a cappela singing group in the movie, “Pitch Perfect.”

Now look at how the kids do it.

Jennifer, Nadia, and Cameron sing “Some Nights” using the cup song rhythm.

Now, here’ a cup song tutorial. Have fun. Maybe you can learn to be as good as these kids. Then you can impress your own children and grandchildren.

The Last MeowCAt yawn

Hey, we can sing, too. Check this out. “Singing Cats” made for Danish TV by Joaquim Nielson. Enjoy.

Okay, now I’m exhausted.  Yawn. Time for a nap.

Meow for now. =<^,^>=
