Weird Cover Versions
on: May 10, 2016, 02:01:32
Hey all,

I've got really inspired by the "guilty pleasures" thread, and I wanted to share an old favourite of mine. But since it doesn't fit in there I'm going to start a new one. Do you know any other weird (but great) covers of famous songs?

@Mark Luto this is a great idea and that cover of Like a Virgin was very funny!

@MartiMedia I love the Walk Off the Earth gang. They're so creative! H

Have you guys seen any videos by the 2Cellos guys?

Great thread @Mark Luto


This one of my faves from the enchanting Civil Wars, sadly no longer together:





Cover of Britney Spears song "Everytime" by The Frames - sorry there seems to be no video of them - just this odd one:





Another dodgy video but this is great - Jack L covering Kylie's "Can't get you outta my head"





There are soooooo many but I must stop now, I must.....

Talking about weird cover versions.... ;D ;D ;D ;D

this is going to be big... ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D this street brass band called Heavy Hoempa  ;D ;D ;D ;D
they are playing all heavy metal and hardrock classics..no really... All of them, from Metallica to Iron Maiden, via guns and Roses etc. (and back)



oh...I see the video is 34 minutes  ;D ;D ;D ;D, but if you watch the first one, you will get the point  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I didn't hear this version and of this cello group before, and to be honest, it sounds fantastic to me

Ow yeah I love that version @Jim , thanks for sharing!!
Missed @Dutchbeat 's post, haha they're hilarious..

Let's see if I have a nice cover in an old box... Ow yes, actually I have.. It's already more than a year old, and maybe I posted it before. But this cover/mashup of Ed Sheeran's 'Thinking out loud' and Sam Smith's 'I'm not the only one' gave me goosebumps when these two guys posted it..



Have fun and I wish you all goosebumps too!
