COVERS OF 80s SONGS PLAYED ON STRANGE INSTRUMENTSThere are a lot of things that make noise in this world. And, some creative people use unusual things to make music. There are plenty of rare/strange instruments out there too. I've run across a few musicians who use strange noises or strange instruments to play some really, really, good covers of 80s songs. Here are some:
Don't know what this instrument is called - a harp-thingy? Whatever it is, this guy plays a killer version of Everybody wants to rule the world - TEARS FOR FEARS
Using technology is one way to make an older song sound fresh and hip. How about this take, Joe Jackson's Steppin Out put through an 8 chip Nintendo Gameboy! Now that's using technology!
Adding a violin makes this sound 'classical' - love my classical WHAM
Switching a song's genre is another interesting way to cover a song. How about WHAM again, but, this time turned "thrash metal".
There is a lot of talent out there - tons of great videos like this: Someone at their home piano/keyboard pounding out great 80s music...sometimes wearing interesting clothing.
Anything on the cello is cool - especially Survivor's Eye of the Tiger. These cello players are intense, so buckle up.

Rick Astley has the best fans - young and old and creative.
His music is still going strong. It seems to be a hit with younger people - check out this fan playing Never Gonna Give You Up on a tiny toy keyboard
My Fav BuffCorrell does his take on Never Gonna Give you Up. One of his most popular videos I'll add. Just showing the staying power of Rick Astley's songs.
Modern TV still uses Rick's songs b/c they make people happy.
Watch the reactions of these folks when they get Rickrolled - in real life, by Rick Astley himself. I think it's so cool that Rick is totally going with this whole Rickrolling thing.
Even weather reporters are not safe from Rick and his Rickrolling...
