I’ve gotten a lot of recommendations this morning to check out an excellent article and list of Cover Songs from the Torontoist. I like how they’ve grouped them into sections (like “Better Than the Original” and “Updating the 80’s”). There are even some links to great YouTube videos.
What I think I’m liking the most, however, are the comments. Some great ideas there for future shows, and of course, excellent suggestions for nominations into the upcoming 2006 Cover Song Countdown.
(Thanks to Dale, Prescott, Jordan, Dan, Jonathan, Andrew, Paulie Coconuts, Winston Wolf, and Henry for sending me a link to the article. You folks are really on the ball.)
