mix no. 7


I think I collect covers the way other people collect... things? Pokemon cards? In any case I have many, and love discovering new ones.

Here are some of my very favorite musical covers. A few of them are silly pop songs, but many are quite special to me. I particularly like when guys' songs are performed by girls, or vice versa, or rock numbers are sung stripped down. There's something strangely intriguing about a tune so beloved, so familiar, becoming somehow new.
