Notes: I raided the "Not Another Teen Movie" soundtrack a little heavy; The Naked Eyes version was also a Marv 3 did a re-make of a; Yes, "Like A Prayer" was, in fact, an 80's song (1989); If you've never heard it, the Derailers version of Prince is bizarre and great!

Haven't heard most of the covers here, but great concept. I'd have to lean toward Teenage Fanclub's "Like a Virgin," Magnetic Fields' "Don't You Want Me Baby," and Dump's (James McNew of Yo La Tengo) album of Prince covers.
ooh, this is fun. i am definitely wanting this mix. you should listen to h2o's cover of "like a prayer" if you havent yet. it's superb.

Woah..this is great! 80s tunes great, but remade but such great bands even better.
