Another fun medley of familiar tunes from the Super Mario Bros. universe of video games, this time performed by the Melodica Men, who manager to put a fresh spin a series of tracks we’ve heard covered a million ways already.
Awesome Music On The Awesomer
The first full trailer for the upcoming Queen biopic looks sure looks solid, with the role of Freddie Mercury in the very capable hands of Rami Malek, and the story taking us from the earliest days of the band, through its meteoric rise, to the tragic decline of one of its frontman.
(PG-13: Lyrics) Who are you to wave your finger? Brass Against the Machine and Sophia Urista once again wow us with an impressive cover orchestration, this time taking on Tool’s 2006 track The Pot and giving it a powerful new infusion of rock, jazz, and vocal energy.
We already know and love Jeff Goldblum for his many classic performances and ebullient personality, but we had no idea he was also a pretty solid jazz pianist. A couple of years back, he and comedian Sarah Silverman did a little duet of the 1927 classic Me and My Shadow.
Most hard rock music is played on a 6-string electric guitar, but Music is Win decided to see what it might sound like if he attempted to play some metal riffs on a 12-string blues guitar. The resulting sound is quite unique – like some kind of prog rock from the future.
(PG-13) A man gets massive amounts of attention heaped upon him when he gets a new and adorable pet with a unique talent in Simon Cahn’s hilariously offbeat music video for DJ Boston Bun’s and DVNO’s catchy dance track about spreading love like a Paddington Bear.
“Success brings sacrifice. And if you thinking it’s a piece of cake, you can have a slice.” Hall of fame MC Rakim dropped by NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concert to perform King’s Paradise from the Luke Cage Season 2 OST, as well as his classics Paid in Full and Know the Ledge.
Guitarist Luca Stricagnoli wows us with another amazing cover, U2’s 1987 hit, With or Without You. Thanks to the amazing three-neck guitar by luthier Davide Serracini, and an EBow vibrating one of the strings, he’s able to produce the song’s many layers in a solo performance.
Despite one reader who didn’t bother providing a real email address so we could respond to his complaint, we’re not sick of Leo Moracchioli’s cover songs yet. Listen up kids, and head to Bikini Bottom with this fun metal edition of the theme song from SpongeBob SquarePants.
There was very little about Falco’s 1985 hit Rock Me Amadeus that was actually rock music, so Leo Moracchioli has cured the song of its electro-pop leanings and turned it into a proper headbanger, delivering on the promise of the original’s harsh-sounding German lyrics.
