Theme - Cover Songs
I Don't Wanna Grow Up
The Return Of Jackie And Judy
Tom Waits also did a version of "Danny Says". I guess he must really like End Of The Century.
Gone Daddy Gone
The Violent Femmes
Oddly, I'm pretty sure this single is the last thing they did together as a band.
The Rolling Stones
I've Been Loving You Too Long
From a Spin-curated tribute to Nirvana's Nevermind. The same album also had The Meat Puppets doing "Smells Like Teen Spirit", but I opted not to include both pairings.
Support Our Troops
This and the previous track are from a Xiu Xiu/Devendra Banhart split single.
Simon And Garfunkel
The Times They Are A-Changin'
To me, this is one of the more fun moments on the mix: Simon And Garfunkel are so reverent to the original song while Dylan is so obviously taking the piss.
Motion City Soundtrack
The Sun Woke The Whole State
Two sides of another split single.
I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday
Pay No Mind
Again, this and the Beck track are both sides of one split single.
Come Talk To Me
The idea of Peter Gabriel's You Scratch My Back cover album was to have all of the artists cover him back, but I guess only a few ended up doing so.
If you didn't figure it out, the theme here is bands covering each other.
Clever idea and interesting pairs.
You must be
to do this.
