Since it's so very hard to spend any time on a computer without finding something fascinating on YouTube (or similar websites), I felt the urge to post one of the things that I find to be incredible as far as music videos go.

It's no secret that I am a big fan of classic rock. Obviously there is a whole new generation of people who had adopted this style of music as there own.
But when it comes to cover songs, most mucisians tend to be purists, feeling that an EXACT copy of an original song completely takes the 'art' from the music.

I can certainly understand that. However, I also feel that the level of accuracy in perfecting every detail of an original score is an art form in itself!
Some of the kids I've subscribed to (on YouTube) who have demonstrated their amazing talent to reproducing some of these rock classics are beyond incredible to me.

I'm sure that many here will already know some of the musicians that have posted some of their stuff on YouTube, but I'd just like to use this thread to give some big time props to any real quality cover that someone may want to post here. I'll start with two exceptional covers which I feel are done PERFECTLY!

These are of such good quality they would make GREAT karaoke songs! In fact I've belted out the lyrics to these tunes many times in recent months! :hihi:

Okay, I'm at it again. I tried my first cover of a Bowie song. One right channel track for the lead vocal and one left channel track for the harmony.
It's sung to the original studio music track, so it should sound familiar. Hope you like it.

I love the cover of Hotel California by the Gipsy Kings. Spanish, but the guitar work is wonderful. Didn't read all 24 pages, so apologies if this is a repeat. I'm a sucker for Latin Music, and I think this is better than the Eagles YMMV.

They keep taking down their Spanish version, but here is a tribute to the Gipsy Kings cover. :covri:

And this is the Kings doing it in English, which is a pale imitation of their Spanish version. If you have a streaming service, check out the Spanish audio. I know you can hear it through Alexa.

Bill I love down alternative comforters.
Love the style and simple elegance, and the feel.

That’s my favorite cover.

this is a pretty solid cover of Nutshell, which imo is one AIC's best songs
