Alex Melton is a YouTuber who likes to play around with music. He’s by far not the only person on there to do the whole ‘what if X artist wrote Y famous song’, but he’s one of the best I’ve seen. He puts real work into rearranging famous tunes into a form that make the new version quite believably sound as if it had actually been composed by the band he is transposing them onto.

His latest work, released on Friday, is one of his very best.
