Alternate Music-An idea I have been playing with

The idea here was to make bad songs good or interesting, and great songs different, and dull songs humorous.

Instead of alternative music, its Alternate Music.

For instance, Guns and Roses Sweet Child of Mine, probably one of my least favorite songs to ever hear, when the key is constantly manipulated, left me with some very interesting and enjoyable results:

At 3:25 you can hear Slash's runs get transformed into a really nice progression.
The actual notes are otherwise identical to the original composition.

Or the great Vanessa Carlton's epic, A Thousand Miles, given a similar treatment.

Or the overplayed favorite, Hotel California:

My music theory chops are junk, does this idea spark any creativity among people who aren't me and could possibly do a better job at it?
