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:

Post Malone (with Travis Barker) did an entire Nirvana set this past weekend to raise money for the UN's COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. I've only listened to part of it, but I enjoyed it. Made me want to go listen to the originals as well.

One of my favorite covers.

Edit: Was just reading the youtube comments for this and I guess this version was used in The Last Dance? Cool!

Glen Campbell covers the William Tell Overture.
(He may not be Prince, but he sure was better than I ever thought he was with his ax.)
