CDZA is a group that takes on musical experiments. Its latest video, the "History of Whistling," is a fun ride through 98 years of sound through 26 songs, performed, as the title suggests, through a pair of very talented pursed lips.
Starting in 1914 with the "Colonel Bogey March"—a ditty you might recognize from movies like The Bridge On the River Kwai and The Breakfast Club—the medley travels all the way up to 2011, concluding with Maroon 5's "Moves Like Jagger."
By the time you make it to the end, you're going to be whistling along with them. In between it stops off at some very familiar tunes, like the themes from The Andy Griffith Show and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Flash forward to more recent years, and you'll hear some more recent tracks like "Home" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes and "Pumped Up Kicks" by Foster The People.
And somehow, whistler Eric Rivera made it all the way through all those songs without running out of breath, forgetting the lyrics, or passing out. [Laughing Squid]
