Musician Alexander Uhl loves to perform rock, pop, and movie music on a church pipe organ. His YouTube channel is packed with covers including this version of Darude’s 1999 trance hit Sandstorm. We also suggest checking out his covers of Bon Jovi’s Living on a Prayer and Cutting Crew’s (I Just) Died In Your Arms.
Awesome The Rolling Stones
Whether or not there was a true rivalry, the media loved to play up the competition between The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. Dog & Rabbit’s brilliantly executed short film plays out this battle through a series of slapstick collages animated using the dueling rock bands’ album art. Terry Gilliam’s Monty Python animations were clearly a source of inspiration.
Bardcore musician Hildegard von Blingin’ is back with another great medieval interpretation of a popular song. This time, we’ve got The Rolling Stones’ 1966 classic Paint It, Black, which works incredibly well with the centuries-old instrumentation and revised Old English lyrics. Just wait for the choir to kick in at the end. You won’t be disappointed.
This October, the Rolling Stones will release Hackney Diamonds, their first original album since 2005 and without Charlie Watts on most tracks. The elder statesmen of rock and roll prove they still have it with the single Angry. The music video features a leather-clad Sydney Sweeney rolling through LA, dancing to a Stones retrospective on the billboards.
Celebrate your love for rock and roll royalty with this official LEGO wall art based on The Rolling Stones’ iconic lips logo.

There I Ruined It reimagines another song as the worst version of itself. This time, they converted The Rolling Stones’ classic Satisfaction into a Scott Joplin-esque ragtime ditty that absolutely nobody asked for. Though we actually enjoyed it more than Cat Power’s version.
It seems age is no barrier to The Rolling Stones producing quality music. Their April 2020 release is as good as many songs from the height of their popularity, and seems especially timely when set against imagery of empty cities photographed during the coronavirus pandemic.
Musician Jamie Dupuis turns in a great cover version of the Rolling Stones’ Paint It Black, performing the 1966 rock classic on his carbon fiber Emerald harp guitar, which produces a wonderfully layered sound that combines both lead guitar and bass sustain sounds in one.
