Gently slammed my heart and mind back into my youth, hearing my mother sing this about my father, whom she never ceased to love. . . 
Acoustix is my first love...they're the ones who brought me to barbershop. But it's Max Q, Vocal Spectrum, and Crossroads that keep me here.
I believe it's been published by the Society.
The damn "tap, tap" noise in some places in the vid is killing me. Can you clean the vid? Awesome nonetheless.

The lyrics are moving enough, but the way it is sung...with so much love and heart makes me cry everytime =)

Wow this is amazing. Julien Neel and Sonny Vande Putte did a collaboration of The Way You Look Tonight and it sounded much like this. Props
Their exit from the stage is also perfectly coordinated, and the judges take note of that sort of thing. How many times do you practice that to get it perfect for comp? These guys were so polished.

I found this interesting... I would also attribute this to the fact that Oxley sang opera in college, so his style is very round and "big". There's about a fifteen year difference between Acoustix's championship year and Max Q's arrival, so one could also attribute that as he got older, he may have lost the ability to project in the same way, or as you said, changed his resonance because of experience.
When comparing Acoustix and Max-Q i'm not going to say which one I think is better. Just remark that as I listen to them the greatest difference i hear is the bass singing technique. I think Jeff has gradualy changed his way of singing (in barbershop) from a more lyrical (more round sound, with more low harmonics) to a more "fit-to-the-style" technique. This fact affects the sound quality of the whole in each case. It's just different, but both superb ;)

the lead/bass match is reminiscent of my all-time favorite quartet... "Boston Common". I was in the audience when "Grandma's Boys" were boo'd for scoring more than the BC. I'm afraid that even though I was from the Illinois District, in my heart I agreed with them.
