A 160+ Cover Song Playlist

A 160+ Cover Song Playlist
So. I know it’s Wednesday, but in light of my going AWOL last Friday I’m releasing two playlists this week. The first is very near and dear to my heart: freaking cover songs. I can’t get enough of cover songs, they are my musical weakness. This week more than ever, I want you commenting if your favorite is missing. About the list: Of course, there are multiple covers of the same song. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. The playlist, in its entirety.

16 Awesome Found Footage Music Videos Thanks to non-linear editing software and various forms of piracy, we don't have to rely on our favorite artists to create great music videos for the songs we love. We can do it ourselves, and that's what the Internet has been doing in abundance for years. CHART's got such an appreciation for these labours of love that we scoured the Internet for the best examples and posted them here. Did we miss any? Let us know in the comments.

30 Albums That Define Cool Any album “list” is going to be incomplete. It’s going to be filled with albums you agree with, artists you hate and some sort of commentary that you probably disagree with. This list is no different. However, rather than ranking these in order of importance or influence, we decided to pick 30 Albums that Define Cool. JOHN LENNON DREAMSITE: JOHN LENNON QUOTES - IT "My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all." - John Lennon

The Ten Worst Cover Songs of All-Time Vanilla Ice & Public Enemy [Photos: Paul Natkin/WireImage; Michael Ochs Archives/GettyImages] The worst cover versions of most songs are heard at the local open mic. But we clap politely because the guy doing the off-key version of "Wish You Were Here" is a sweet guy who's just so happy to be out of the house for an evening that to let him in on his lousiness would be inhumane. Popular recording artists, though, deserve to be called out when they harm a great song. They're big boys. They can take it. I pulled off the novelties. 50 Best Albums Of 2012 It’s only at the end, with ‘Constellations’ and the equally revelatory prospect of an Enter Shikari ballad that they hold their hands up.

It might look like a tragedy, but like the story of Pandora’s box, this fearsome record still concludes with hope.

It’s a strange concept, but becoming an active and educated listener pays off in a huge way. First lets cover a few points about what ear training is and isn’t and then we’ll get to the exercises. 50 Awesome Cover Songs... Because This List Needs to Exist! Alright, as several of you know, I have a deep and abiding love of cover songs. Not the crappy cover bands that dress up like Kiss or only sing Foreigner's greatest hits. I'm talking about really good re-interpretations of popular songs. I was prowling Google the other night searching for new cover songs and was very disappointed.

Marinate in Melancholy: A Playlist of Wonderfully Miserable Songs A gloriously melancholy playlist to kick off 2014 compiled with suggestions from the DiS community. For a lot of people January is a time filled with promise. A fresh start. A clean slate. So many things that weren't conceivably possible a few weeks ago suddenly become attainable goals.
