So I made a theme mix of covers by some of my indie favorites. Tryied to stick mostly with good production versions and not reuse a band (for instance I was very tempted to Queens of the Stone age's cover of the Kinks but chose this older recording instead). This plays pretty good as is, but I am open to more suggestions. One song I would love to have added is the Flaming Lips version of Kylie Minogue's Can't get you out of my head - but as I am in Europe now those cdep's are too expensive for my tastes. how I yearn for the neighborhood used cd store, oh well...maybe next time.
