Margaritaville - Jimmy Buffett 

 

I remember the first time I heard this song on the radio, and how cool and funny it was! I couldn’t wait to go buy a single. 45 years later, and I still get a kick out if it, always puts a smile on my face. What a great little song!  😸

Oddly enough, No Excuses - Alice in Chains.

Wash' Umkhukhu - Dan Nkosi

 

Found this one on a CD called Pop Music From Africa that I stumbled across in the 90's in a used record store....Among the best things I ever spent $2.00 on.

Beethoven’s Ninth meets Rock 1985 - Deep Purple

https://youtu.be/vodWKgp71os

 

. . . Another take on Beethoven. A similar version was done previously by Ritchie with Rainbow as Difficult To Cure, but Ritchie with Purple was more exciting.

There are a lot of classical pieces that are done by rock musicians. I am fond of classical and the rock versions.

One comes to mind "Hall of the Mountain King" Electric Light Orchestra. That piece was done by many. 

Ya know, that might be a good thread to start "Classical by Rock Bands" or something like that, if it hasn't been done already.

@Vexed  - Yes, they did! Maybe you should start a topic. It hasn’t been done to my knowledge, and I’ve been here a few years now.

@EricC28201 - I had to look this one up, but recognized it as soon as it started to play, from Saturday Night Fever!
