Song of the Day – “Whispering Bells” – The Del-Vikings

It’s interesting where music gets its influences. Barbershop was inspired by bell carillons to have “bell tones”, travels up and down the scales by the group. “Bong bong bong bong bong bong bong!” Doo-wop, also done by a capella groups, incorporated bell tones themselves, as can be seen in this song from 1957.
