What Is Love: Piano Cover

Haddaway’s 1993 tune What Is Love conjures up images of Will Ferrell, Chris Kattan, and Jim Carrey endlessly bobbing their heads, but Lisztlovers‘ piano arrangement turns the cheesy dance track into an elegant and moving piece of classical music.

Black Hole Sun: Piano Cover

Pianist Maxence Cyrin broke through to the masses with his stirring rendition of Where Is My Mind? But that’s not the only amazing cover version he’s done. Sit back and enjoy some Soundgarden played impeccably on his grand piano. His Daft Punk ain’t too shabby either.

Flight of The Imperial March

Flight of The Imperial March

Pianist D Wave mashed up two seemingly mismatched tunes, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee and John Williams’ Imperial March from Star Wars into a single cohesive track. There’s a hint of ragtime jazz in there for good measure too.

We’ve seen five people play one guitar, but before that ever happened, a dozen pianists shared duties at a single grand piano. When all of their hands get going at once, it looks some sort of crazy centipede. (Thanks Orion!)
