This started with my friend Adam Chase asking on Facebook for something new to listen to. Considering he himself is in a band that plays nothing but covers of songs made by another cover band, I assumed he would be interested in seeing the unabashedly awesome cover songs list I’ve been compiling for the last few years.
I love love LOVE hearing old songs in a new way. I remember hearing the Beatles for the first time on my mom’s old vinyl records in the 80’s. It was a great experience…that I’ll never have again.
But what comes close to having that first experience over again is hearing the music you love arranged differently.
So imagine the joy when I heard the reggae version of Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, or the smooth jazz version of George Harrison’s “Something,” or the bluegrass version of Strawberry Fields Forever.
Well now you can have some of the fun as well. I put together a few playlists on Spotify that I listen to at work. Each one is a list of cover songs in a different genre. Feel free to subscribe to each playlist of you also use Spotify.
and for those of you with babies...
So there you have it…I hope this mega cover songs list gives you enough covers of songs in every genre to get you through any occasion.
Did I miss any awesome cover songs? Let me know in a comment below and I’ll add them.
