Straight No Chaser, which started at Indiana University in 1996, got a second life when one of its early live performances of The 12 Days of Christmas became a YouTube smash in 2006. A deal with Atlantic Records, relentless touring and more hits on YouTube -their clips have been seen by 25 million people -have made them the highest-profile a cappella group we can think of. As they make their way to Montreal for two shows here Saturday, founding member Randy Stine sent us a list of his iPod favourites.

"Roda" CeU

"If I Ever Feel Better" Phoenix

"Lebanese Blonde" Thievery Corporation

"Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" Angelique Kidjo
