The A Capella World of the SINGOFF

Lately, I've been searching for vocal jazz arrangements that are very similar to that of the new NBC show that aired tonight "THE SINGOFF"  (if you haven't seen it, I highly suggest it...your kids will be talking about it tomorrow)
I have found a couple of songs from GLEE re-arranged ,by Hal Leonard and can honestly say that I am seriously dissatisfied with the Men's Ensemble  for sale featuring the Usher song "Confessions".  My students find the arrrangement amusing until I point out that it is highly inappropriate for school use.  (lyrics: "then my girl on the side says got one on the way" how is this appropriate for teens? Its not)
This leads me to the question...
Where is this wonderful music, that is so complicated and unique and sparks interest not only in my classroom, but also with parents and faculty and friends???? Please tell me there is a magic site that provides such music...
My qualifications...a) school appropriate themes  b) fun/popular/audience pleasing c) music arrangements that don't cost an arm and a leg in arr. fees (no offense arrangers, just have a certain budget to go buy) 
By the way, if you are planning on tuning into THE SINGOFF ...its on this week only!  8-10
