Everybody Loves A Cover Version Pt. 9: THE WEEKEND MIX
I had been working on a few different themes for today's Weekend Mix.
10 Good R.E.M. Songs Since 1992
10 Teenage Fanclub Songs That Don't Sound Like The Other 90
10 Todd Rundgren Songs That Won't Send Readers Away For Good
10 Songs About Oakhurst, New Jersey
The Best Of Morrissey
All were impossible to compile.
I decided to go with another collection of covers, being inspired by Joe Jackson's inspired take on Television's "See No Evil."
I know I have used some of these tunes before, but it's less out of laziness and more because I just love them. Plus, there is always a chance someone may have missed something the first go around.
Here is what I've got with original artists in parentheses next to title.

Misfire (Queen)- Neko Case
