If you’ve been around on the Internet for a while, you’ve probably heard of Rule 34, which I tend to paraphrase as “if you can think of it, there is porn of it” to which there is the corollary comment “if there isn’t yet, then there soon will be”. Well, I think there is a version of Rule 34 for music, which could be stated thus:
If you can think of the style and the tune, then somewhere there exists a cover of that tune in that style.
In short, if you can imagine it, it probably exists on YouTube somewhere. Here are some recent examples:
Andrea Vedrucci. Covers just about anything imaginable from classical to game theme tracks. Look out for the Mario Triology!
Dr Pez. Guitar and accordion covers of a whole range of music. Some of the game theme tunes are great! Look out for Animal Crossing (Bossa Guitar and Accordion duet) and the Wii Shop channel (smooth jazz guitar and accordion).
You can even get technology in on the act. Here are some drones performing the James Bond Theme.
As I said. If you can imagine it, there is probably a cover of it. Google will almost certainly provide.
