Nuggets 316 – Covers IX

Wanda Jackson

Reasons to love a cover;

  • It is a fresh version of a song that you already like;
  • It is a song by one of your favourite artists covering a song that you haven’t heard before.

Another mix of covers follows. You will notice a change in the music player. Problems, problems… Click away and you will figure out what to do.

I am particularly fond of the Juliana Hatfield cover of the Olivier Newton John song. She has turned it into a real banger.

The Bennie & The Jets cover is also fab.

Looking forward to seeing Teenage Fanclub when they play next year.

Apparently Beck has a large collection of synthesisers. In an interview he said that he was fascinated by the different tones they make. I’m no muso, but I am intrigued by how the synth sound has changed over the years. This mix has synth tunes from 1981 onwards. See if you can pick the old from the new.

There’s a few tracks missing, I will fix that later.

If you don’t see a playable playlist below, try the following link to Grooveshark. The playlist should look good on a mobile phone. Feedback appreciated…
