“Neil Young” (aka. fantastic impersonator Jimmy Fallon) does a Harvest-era acoustic performance. Amanda Palmer goes cabaret on her webcam. RoxinPunch busts out some full on bluegrass harmonies which Michael Gregory/Schmoyoho (the man behind Auto-Tune the News) turns it into a club-ready dance track. Finally, Kevin Lien mashes it up with Justin Bieber in an acoustic cover, which seems an appropriate pairing.
