We always thought The Beatles’ track Because a trippy and haunting tune to begin with, so it’s no wonder that the otherworldly sounds of the theremin suit the song so perfectly, especially in the capable hands of Cihan Gulbudak, one of the true masters of the unusual electronic instrument.
THE BEST Theremin
Musician Cihan Gulbudak turns in an epic performance of Radiohead’s 1997 hit Paranoid Android using a theremin to replace the main vocal track. The spooky alien sounds suit the song just perfectly. Be sure to check out his cover of Massive Attack’s Teardrop too.
Musician Randy George created this clip more than a decade ago, performing the most unusual cover version we’ve ever heard of Gnarls Barkley’s hit tune Crazy – using a theremin in place of the lead vocals. Given the title and subject matter of the song, it’s somehow fitting.
