Unusual Cover Versions

#1
I didn't want to clutter the "Music" thread with whacky covers and I think that unusual cover versions deserve their own thread that can be ignored or enjoyed at the readers' discretion.

Warning: some may perceive heresy hereabouts!

Ali Spagnola has a whole YouTube channel where she does covers in the style of another artist. The first part of the video breaks down the song before the full cover is played at the end of the video.

I've linked to the song below, but rewind and watch from the beginning too.

What if Lizzo's Truth Hurts was by Mumford & Sons? (ft. Nataly Dawn of Pomplamoose)

This whole album is magnificent. It’s great watching people who don’t know what’s coming try to work out what each song is.

I can't quite believe this has been posted. I have just spent a few days on the island of Koh Rong Sanloem, Cambodia. The place is a picture perfect, but the owners of my beach hut insisted on playing this cover version on loop about five times an hour. Drove me to insanity! 😂

If there’s one thing that gets on my tits it’s people slowing down 80s dance classics, stripping out the beat, and singing them acapella or with solo piano accompaniment. John Lewis and a few others do this every year for their Christmas advert. It’s boring now and been down to death.

Likewise, there’s nowt worse than someone speeding up a slow/acoustic number and trying to turn it into a “dance hit”.
