Talent alone can only take you so far in this world. Fortunately for Naoko A. Maruko, she also has an amazing amount of creativity, too.
The San Francisco native re-makes popular songs by playing several threads of the tune on her cello, and then matches them up to create an even and formidable sound.
She doesn't seem intimidated by any song or genre, which is easily verifiable when you see her cover such wide-ranging music styles like Queen, Bach, Pink and even Fun.
Correction: A previous version of this post incorrectly referred to the song as "Knights of Sedonia." It has since been corrected -- sorry Muse!
