Watch History’s Greatest Songs Get the Whistling Treatment

In the spirit of nostalgic lounge acts, there is a group of hipster virtuosos staking viral claim in the worldwide Web’s musical revolution. The group goes by the name CDZA, and their latest creative musical montage is entitled ‘Opus No. 2. – The History of Whistling.’

In this video, CDZA weaves a sonic tapestry of 26 songs spanning a period of 98 years primarily using a piano, an upright bass, a bow tie, some lips and a snort of white wine. ‘The History of Whistling’ is the follow-up to the group’s ‘Opus No. 1 – The History of Lyrics That Aren’t There,’ which went viral sometime after September of last year.

It seems that since then CDZA has been hard at work (if that’s what you want to call it) looking for creative ways to medley tunes by Otis Redding, The Beatles, Guns N’ Roses, Warren G, Maroon 5, and The Black Keys. Come to think of it, we guess that really is work!

So pour yourself a really expensive scotch with plenty of ice, stir with your index finger and sip it like you’re classy for the next three and a half minutes. Oh, and feel free to whistle while you watch!
