Night Thread of YouTube covers (5/25/21)

Are you like me? Do you like music that’s familiar, but in a slightly different style? Do you often spend time randomly googling for various style covers of songs you know to see if the internet gods have provided such a thing?

What’s that? You say that doesn’t describe you at all? Well, tough, it’s my Night Thread. And you’ll just have to sit there while I link some of my favorite cover songs that can be found on the vast YouTube landscape. Wait, no! Don’t scroll do-
