People are Making Amazing Medieval Style Covers of Pop Songs and Calling It Bardcore

 

Two months ago, a YouTube channel by the name of Hildegard von Blingin’, uploaded a Medieval style cover of ‘What is Love’ by Haddaway. Not only did they recreate the instrumental in a Medieval style but they rewrote the lyrics in a Medieval style too.

Somebody clever heard it and called it ‘Bardcore’ and here we are, with a new whimsical style that has found a fun and creative way to reimagine hit songs we all know and (mostly) love.

While some earlier versions of this idea can be found online, Hildegard von Blingin’ has really stepped to the forefront of this emerging genre with each successive release generating millions of views and plays.

Below you will find the YouTube covers embedded and you can also listen to them on Soundcloud. Enjoy!
