This is a multitrack video of the Barbershop tag "To Reach The Unreachable Star", which is an excerpt the Belgium song "La Quête Impossible" by Jacques Brel. Please use for high quality.

It is the arrangement by Burt Staffen (1970) and also tag no. 69 of David Wright's classic Barbershop tags compilation. I added a A1 to the final chord, which I barely managed to hit one morning. I did a lot of EQing to that note, because without adjustment it just sounded like noise.
This is the Tube & Berger Multitrack Jingle. Please use
for better quality.

Tube & Berger is the alias of Dance/Electronica producers Arndt Rörig and Marco Vidovic from Germany:

They found my multitrack videos and asked me to record a Jingle for them. I was honored and gladly accepted! They wanted me to sing a slightly modified version of the To Reach The Unreachable Star/Impossible Dream Barbershop tag with the lyrics "Tube and Berger", using a multitrack setup similar to my other videos:

Here is my multitrack version of the original To Reach the Unreachable Star tag for comparison:
