random top six

Time for another Random Top 6 list! Here's the deal: every week whenever I feel like it, I will choose a random category and select the top 6 songs fitting that criteria. Today I have chosen cover songs. It was hard to slim it down to just six, as there are a ton of great cover songs out there, and I'm not saying these are the six best of all time ever... but here is the Top 6 Cover Songs of the Time Being. Even though not all of them are new. I just pretty much chose six nifty ones that people may not have heard. Everyone knows Johnny Cash's Hurt is the best cover ever anyway. And before we get into it, if anyone has suggestions to future top six lists, let me know. I'm all ears.
Oh, and also, some of these are live, so may not have the best quality. But all are completely listenable. I have also included links to youtubes of the originals.

  2. Hi,

    I made a remix of Keane’s song ‘My Shadow’. Let me know what you think, or if you can write a blog post about it :)
