First, Eric Calderone (or ERock), who I first mentioned back in 2012. He’s still going strong, covering mostly (but not just) theme songs from pop culture. He’ll arrange them so that they’re with a guitar. It sounds like that wouldn’t be a big deal, but… well, check these two out:

These tickle the same neurons that the best mashups do for me. Like these kids covering “46 and 2”.
What awesome covers have you run across on YouTube?
