Radical Renditions

Rock musicians can wreck havoc on old classic tunes, sometimes in ways that the original composers never intended or would have even dreamed of. For example, a classic rock tune can be rendered into a waltz, or an old French chanson can be made over into a pop tune. Here are a few radical renditions of tunes:

Tritons (Italy) - Rock Around The Clock (Bill Haley and His Comets, "Rock Around The Clock")

Les Classels (Quebec, Canada) - Les Trois Cloches (Edith Piaf, "Les Trois Cloches")

Kertukai (Lithuania) - Ilgas Plonas Techasietis (Kingston Trio, "Long Tall Texan")

Tonis Magi (Estonia) - Chicago (Paper Lace - "The Night Chicago Died")

Hugues Aufray (France) - Jambalaya (Hank Williams - "Jambalaya")
