You want to see whatever common people see.

As you all know, YouTube is rife with covers by people no one has ever heard of who happen to have webcams, but every now and again you'll stumble on something/someone who isn't total crap and is just plain charming and cute. It doesn't seem remotely possible that it would be legal for me to find someone born in 1987 so damned adorable, but it is. I cannot believe 1987 was 20 years ago.

Anthony Hill covers Pulp and Lily Allen, respectively:

Just last night Nerve's blog posted about a school (PS 22) doing Tori Amos covers...

Included on their site is a great "Common People" cover. Kinda cool hearing kids channeling Jarvis. For fans of Scala and The Langley Schools Music Project.

Also found on Archive.org while searching for covers, a nice version of "California Dreaming" by the Mamas and the Pappas as done by Naughty Karate...

Hey, Anthony, keep up the great work! I'll keep watching. (That sounded creepier than I intended.)

You are right. YouTube has plenty of cute/talented people posting their music or videos.
