What are some good classical covers of popular songs?

I'd like to find some piano or string [or even orchestral] covers of rock songs and other popular songs. A lot of the ones I've found so far are undesirable because of a "heavy" sound or because the tempo is too fast (see note about my job below).
A friend turned me on to Scott D. Davis., whose album Rockfluence - Solo Piano
has some of my favorite piano covers. I've also found some usable covers done by the Vitamin String Quartet.
I'm mainly looking for cover versions that are more mellow, because I'd like to play them at work, where only low to mid-tempo classical is allowed. A good example of this is the Bruno Mars song Grenade, covered by the Piano Tribute Players
