The Genre Flip Youtube Covers Round-Up – 9/23/13

It’s been a while since we had round-up of cover videos, so we aim to address that with today’s post. This time around, we have a batch of songs that have been altered enough from their originals to be considered a completely different genre. In a number of the following cases, the argument could be made that it’s just as good if not better in the new format. And if there is one video in particular I feel I should point out, it’s the first one by Sherilyn Yi. That girl does a near-perfect switchup cover to Ariana Grande’s “The Way”. I really like the original but i LOVE Sherilyn’s rendition. It’s a perfect example of how you don’t necessarily need high production values to do it well.
