We Got It Covered

The cover version is much maligned artform mainly thanks to total tosspots like Mark Ronson. Its not all bad though as the attached mix demonstrates. Lots of cool tunes you'll know and some you won't. On some you might know the tune but not who's doing it or recognise the song and not know it was a cover. You can have some fun by trying to identify the song, who's covering it and who recorded the original (If thats what gets you off!) Guaranteed Ronson free!
