I love hearing really good acoustic versions of songs. Not only do they sound great (when done right), it takes a lot of talent to pull it off. Fortunately, YouTube has a bunch of such videos, although I can't find them all on my own. Please share some acoustic versions of your favorite songs.


I'll start. Here's AC/DC doing "You Shook Me All Night Long". The video sucks since it's just a bunch of still pictures, but oh well:

And here's a young Don McLean doing "American Pie":

I posted this one in a different thread. It's an a capella version of Bohemian Rhapsody. Not only is it a talented parody but it has science in it.

Someday, joor goin' to see the name of Googie Gomez in lights and joor goin' to say to joorself, "Was that her?" and then joor goin' to answer to joorself, "That was her!" But you know somethin' mister? I was always her yuss nobody knows it! - Googie Gomez

That is awesome! I love BR, and that is a very creative rendition. Who ever thought science geekery could be so cool. ;)

You know, I'd love to see the Wizard do something like this. Take a classic song and sing it with math-related lyrics. Would generate a lot of buzz!





Here's Bohemian Rhapsody on solo guitar (start at 0:35):

I just saw this recently and liked it. Sorry I am a noob and don't know how to insert the video.

I got a plan, we take all your picks we reverse them like one of those twilight zone episodes where everything is the opposite. You say "black" we go white.
