Cover me, I’m going in!
After a week of neglect, it is time to write some posts on this here blog of mine. In my defense I was on vacation for part of the week. In any case this weeks play list come to us from Jessica M. She made a couple suggestions about a week ago and we are going to include them in the same blog post. She wanted us to do a cover mix! In case you don’t know what that is, a “cover song” is a song performed by another artist or band that was originally written and/or performed by another. We are going to a bit of a love and hate theme to it. One cover song you adore, and one cover song that you despise! So technically we will be doing two play lists this week.
All songs should be posted to the comments section of this post and should include Song, Artist, and Original Artist. Feel free to comment why you love or hate the songs too. Again you can post 2-3 songs per play list if you can’t narrow it down.
