“New York, New York” Time Travel
The world of barbershop is filled with classic songs that people have enjoyed to for the longest time. Although the shape and style may have varied, we’ve had a crush on “New York, New York” for many years.
In 1984, on stage for the first time at a small elementary school in Rönninge, this song fueled us with bigger dreams. In 2013, at the international championships of barbershop in Honolulu, Hawaii – it helped us when we finally won our first gold medal.
Music is all about sharing a moment. But time travelling with these filmed, very different versions of “New York, New York” is more than just two separate moments to us. It shows a clear evidence of the progress that we have made during these years. Not only did we win the international championships with this song in the package – we also performed it in our show one year later in Carnegie Hall, New York City the following year. For a moment, time stood still.
Isn’t that a good reason to celebrate this anniversary, say?
