The tongue-in-cheek duo behind the YouTube channel MelodicaNow devote most of their attention to the eponymous keyboard instrument. They also, however, have a flair for demonstrating the absurdity of certain creative musical arrangements.

For example, here's what Brahms's immortal lullaby sounds like when accompanied by a (relatively) gentle snare drum.

If you get a kick out of that, you can also check out the duo's videos featuring tambourine and — seasonally, if not musically, appropriate — sleigh bells.
