  • Motown Mash-up Ideas?

    So... I'm thinking of arranging a Motown Mash-up for an acapella group. Problem is, I need ideas for songs to include.

    Thinking about things like:

    "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)"

    "Ain't No Mountain High Enough"

    "I Heard It Through The Grape Vine"

    "I Want You Back"

    "Dancing In The Streets"

    I'm looking for things that would be fun to sing and fun to listen to as well. As this is a mash-up (a medley, you might say), I'll only be using bits and pieces of each. I'm also trying to include a pretty fair balance of melody and harmony parts between Tenor 1,2 and Baritones (as the poor Baritones get left with the upper part of the bass-line most of the time while tenors get all the melody). I'm also looking for an interesting bass line for our Basses to sing, and some parts where our VPists can shine. (VP=Vocal Percussion.)

    Thanks for your suggestions!

  • Fingertips desensitized to heat...?

    I've been able to stand more heat on my hands than most people for several years, to the point that I can stick them in scalding water and not feel too uncomfortable. I'm pretty sure that came from years of washing dishes by hand in scalding water. But now my fingertips barely register heat at all. An example: After pulling a pan from the oven and setting it on the stove, it almost fell and I managed to stop it with my fingertips and push it back on the stove. I don't have any burns on my fingers and I didn't feel any heat, though I was touching the hot metal for at least 5 seconds.

    My fingers also seem to be desensitized to the cold as well. When grabbing a bottle of water from the refrigerator it feels room temp to my fingers, but if I put it to my forearms, I can definitely tell it's cold.

    Does anyone have any clue as to what is wrong with me? Have I become desensitized to heat altogether? I don't thin it's nerve damage because i still have fine motor skills and can feel small details on a surface.
