The 'We are Young Cover Party' that has been featured on YouTube, which merges some of the best talents the world has to offer covering the hit Fun song, has been a huge hit with the online community. Mashing up 40 different covers to recreate the song in a way that you may never have imagined before, the project does a great job at alternating between the covers that sound shockingly like the band and those that have veered in an entirely new direction.
The awesome mish-mash of sounds, styles and instruments is a great way to see the different takes people take away from the same song and how important creativity is to differentiate from one another. Whether it is the older fellows singing to the youngest of children, the song has definitely captured an audience and a following.
