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.
Happy New Year one and all. Here is a mix I made for some friends. Feel free to sing along.
