Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop” covered by a guy on a violin? Why not?:
Well, it IS grandpa’s style, I suppose. (No extra points for saying “this is f’ing awesome” in the comments, by the way)
Peter Lee Johnson’s made a habit over the years of covering pop and hip-hop hits, like Frank Ocean’s “Thinkin About You”:
