Ah, the covers mix... I am really picky about what covers to include -- some just are not good, even when they are done by people you love... But the ones I pick are, in my opinion, gems. This is my third and I have almost enough good ones for a fourth. If anybody has a good cover or two that I might fancy, give me a hollar and let's trade... :)

This looks pretty cool. If you can find it you should hear Jeff Mangum's (of Neutral Milk Hotel fame) cover of the Paris Sisters "I Love How You Love Me", if you already haven't that is. I was just listening to it now and it's great.

Much of this I may well inspire me to make a cover's mix of Sonic Youth's best tracks methinks!

Another cool collection.

This would be interesting to listen to. I usually don't like covers as well as the original version.

Very interesting stuff. 'Needle of Death' is lovely and I like that Futureheads song a lot.

Excellent. Always love seeing a good covers mix on the site (even if it takes a few weeks to discover!)
