Pitch Perfect

Hunnypot Radio Live DJ Set / Favorite Tunes and Times of 2012

A week ago on Monday, while most other bloggers were posting their year end lists I was lucky enough to get to share mine on a live radio show.

Every other Monday night, Hunnypot Radio hosts a live show at a local venue with two industry professional guest “DJs” and two live acts.  I was invited to participate as an “industry professional” “DJ” in the last show of the year.  Whenever I hear my name mentioned as a professional in the music industry, I feel like I’ve somehow pulled one over on them, hence the quotes.  And thankfully, DJing in this case just means choosing ten songs and burning two CDs, hence the second use of quotes.

Still though, even without doing my own spinning, it was pretty cool to hear my song picks played at a club.  And everyone seemed to enjoy.

Since I am unable to put together a collection of songs without some sort of connection, I thought it was only appropriate to assemble some of my favorites of the year.

“What helps offset the predictable in this very predictable movie is a series of show-stopping numbers, so props to the folks who oversaw music and choreography.” – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times Film Critic

Full disclosure to anyone reading this, I myself helped out on this film for just under half of the process; my boss is one of those “folks who oversaw music.”

It doesn’t take a member of the music industry, though, to appreciate how much work went into the musical aspects of Pitch Perfect.  Julia Michels and Julianne Jordan were the executive music producers of the film – responsible for working with the director on music selection, overseeing all the a cappella arrangements, music clearance, both pre-recording and vocal sessions during post-production, facilitating the creation of the three recorded mashups in the film, playing vital roles in the creation of the soundtrack and so much more.
