We already know that Anthony Vincent is an expert vocal impressionist. He’s also great at rearranging songs into different styles. This time, he took The Weeknd’s hit Blinding Lights and took advantage of its ’80s influenced sounds to turn it into a Depeche Mode song.

Guitarist Luca Stricagnoli takes on The Weeknd f/Daft Punk track I Feel It Coming. While we still love the buttery smooth vocals and electronic grooves of the original, Luca’s masterful plucking and strumming is equally pleasing to our ears.

(PG-13: Lyrics) Anthony Vincent of Ten Second Songs takes on the Radiohead classic Creep, first with an impression of Thom Yorke, then belting out unique interpretations in the styles of David Bowie, Luther Vandross, and more. The Hollies and Lana Del Ray bits were a clever nod to accusations of plagiarism.

What happens when you combine the power rock vocals of DragonForce’s track Through the Fire and Flames with the ’80s-soaked synth beats of The Weeknd’s Blinding Lights? As YouTube commenter Ozan Emre Keser put it, you end up with a Journey song you never heard before. A stellar mashup from William Maranci.

How to Create Blinding Lights

How to Create Blinding Lights

Musician and blank-starer Seth Everman is an expert at deconstructing songs and figuring out how to replicate them. This time out, he shows us his method for playing The Weeknd’s hit Blinding Lights using his couch, a toilet, and various other things around his house. Naturally, he still needed his keyboard for the ’80s synth bits.

The guys from Pomplamoose are back with another great mashup, this time combining Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean, Justin Timberlake’s Can’t Stop the Feeling, and The Weeknd’s Can’t Feel My Face into a single seamless track. It’s basically the live equivalent of a dance mix.

(PG-13: Language) DJ Flipboitamidles mashed up C418’s remix of the Stranger Things title theme with The Weeknd and Daft Punk’s megahit Starboy, resulting in a more textured darkwave track. The lyric video is dope too.

Can’t Feel My Face: Dentist Edition

Musician Andrew Huang made this clever cover version of The Weeknd’s Can’t Feel My Face using title-appropriate instruments – dental tools. He should think about doing a cover of Novocaine for the Soul using the same gimmick.
