The Baywatch theme sounds better with acoustic guitar - VIDEO

BaywatchI've always had this theory that even the worst songs in the world can sound better if you play them on an acoustic guitar. You can take the most insipid sitcom theme song or the most bombastic heavy metal tune, and when you play the song on an acoustic guitar, it suddenly becomes more profound, more deep, just better somehow.

The folks over at Best Week Ever have complied a great set of videos that show people doing the theme songs to various TV shows on various instruments. Some of them are pretty straightforward with normal instruments (for example, a small orchestra doing the Muppet Show theme and Family Matters done on piano), while others are rather odd and unexpected, like the parrot doing the Andy Griffith Show theme or The Love Boat performed on a theremin. After the jump, one of my favorites: the theme to Baywatch performed by a guy on an acoustic guitar. He even has his shirt off like a lifeguard and shows pics from the show.

I still don't get that MacGyver theme on the ruler though.

You would call a tamburica a "normal instrument?" Are you from Serbia?

I recently heard an acoustic guitar version of Eminem's "Lose Yourself," [with lyrics] that ended with a transition into "Kashmir" by Zeppelin [music only]. It was pretty good. Although Mr. Mathers' vocals are better than Trace Bundy's, IMO.

Hmm, let's see if that's true:
