I’m not too fond of obvious cover songs, the ones that remain too close to the original. It’s like the artist is not even trying, they are just playing somebody else’s work! For this month’s show, I tried to put together a playlist of covers that are the opposite: a transformation of the original art into something new and exciting. I hope you like them.

Playlist:

  1. Oldham Brothers - Wouldn’t It Be Nice
  2. M. Ward - Let’s Dance
  3. Cowboy Junkies - Sweet Jane
  4. Grant-Lee Phillips - Age Of Consent
  5. The Bad Plus - Velouria
  6. Señor Coconut Y Su Conjunto - The Robots
  7. Saint Etienne - Only Love Can Break Your Heart
  8. Yo La Tengo - Be Thankful For What You Got
  9. La Buena Vida - Old man
  10. Ana D - Más
  11. Bart Davenport - Maria Bethania
  12. The Raincoats - Lola
  13. Eileen - Ces Bottes Sont Faites Pour Marcher
