This ska-jazz cover of the Animal Crossing: New Horizons theme is everything

I’m a little late to the party as I’ve just discovered the fantastic world of YouTuber Pickitup’s ska covers! K.K. Slider himself would be impressed by his ska-jazz cover of the Animal Crossing: New Horizons theme. Now, if that’s not your thing, Pickitup’s got a huge catalog of other ska/[insert music genre here] covers on his channel Ska Tune Network that are sure to delight.
I have been given this gift and love for music, and i’ve chosen to do the most important thing I can possibly think of with it, and that’s to create ska covers of various songs.
This entire journey began on christmas of 2016, when I jokingly posted on facebook saying I should make a bad ska cover of a christmas song, and everyone encouraged me to actually do it, so I did it and people loved it, so since then I’ve been using my resourses to record myself playing guitar, bass, trumpet, trombone, saxophone, keyboard, and sometimes unconventional instruments like viola, ukulele, euphonium, and honestly anything I can get my hands on to create covers of songs I find interesting or songs other people tell me I should do!
Here’s another fun one: A ska-punk one of Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy.”
