If videos of amateurs covering well-known songs are your thing, then this compilation, courtesy of MeTheOne.com, should be right up your alley. This video features 43 wannabe YouTube musicians covering Fun.’s summer anthem ‘We Are Young’ using a variety of instruments and styles. Surprisingly, it all seems to work.
Several perform the song on ukelele, flute, acoustic guitar, piano and violin, and one even uses a harp. Others sing it a cappella, while some harmonize with themselves. Several YouTube-ers give the song a R&B twist and there’s even one who imbues it with killer reggae dancehall flavor
While we can’t attest to the individual quality of each cover, they somehow work when put together. What do you think? How does the original, which you can check out below, compare to this compilation of covers?
