Man Performs A Mashup Of The 'Home Alone' Soundtrack Using Only His Voice—And It's Impressive

Personally, I find acapella singing incredibly goofy, but that’s probably because I don’t have whatever level of confidence you need to make drum sounds with your mouth. Acapella super star Mike Tompkins has got a whole lot of that secret ingredient, plus a talent for giving the people what they want.

This Christmas, he’s giving us the soundtrack written by famous composer John Williams for Home Alone. It’s funny that I rarely think of this soundtrack at all, but as soon as I hit play I sighed, “Ahhh, this is what the holidays sound like.” Weird how music infiltrates your brain. 

Let Tompkins bring that nostalgic magic to you, with just thousands of instrumental mouth sounds:

Yup, that definitely sounds like music!

Most live acapella groups are pretty accomplished at layering sounds to sound like a band, but Tompkins creations require a little technological assistance. In a behind the scenes exposé, you can see him working with literally hundreds and hundreds of tracks to make his unique sound.

He also shared a glimpse into what it’s like to do all this work:

Tompkins has been doing this for years, and has a huge following of acapella-enthusiasts. This is truly the golden age of not playing instruments.

Thanks for the holiday cheer, Tompkins, and for introducing me to a YouTube world I had never yet dared to enter. I might like acapella now?!

Dad Performs Adorable Duet With His Daughter Of This Classic 'Toy Story' Song

Whenever I think of the movie Toy Story, I think about that gross next door neighbor kid who tortured the toys and how every single neighborhood has a horrible menace like that roaming about.

Then I think of the iconic Randy Newman track in the film, “You’ve Got A Friend In Me.” In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, listen to this amazingness below.

Now it’s almost impossible to think that this iconic track could get even better. I mean just try listening to it and not think about your childhood or the first time you saw that amazing animation and started feeling bad for Woody and how he was no longer the subject of Andy’s adoration.

And just when you thought you couldn’t love that song anymore, this dad went and did a duet with his 3-year-old daughter.

Once Claire Ryann opens her mouth to sing, the song takes on a whole new meaning. How this dad and his baby girl made the song entirely their own is pretty incredible.

After their recording went viral, they performed it live, too.

 Little Claire, now 4-years-old, seems to have a penchant for singing Disney tracks. Here she is rocking The Little Mermaid’s “Part of Your World”.

Daddy-daughter duos are amazing.
