Insert Witty “Cover” Pun Here

I have always had a love/hate relationship with cover songs. Bar bands that do nothing but covers bore the bejezuz out of me. Exact covers are horrible. But a good cover that reinvents a song can be amazing, and is at least interesting. One of my favorites is The Band’s version of Atlantic City by Bruce Springsteen.

I stumbled across a couple of cover song sites today. Boing Boing posted about Clash covers on Cover Lay Down, a blog of folk covers. The second, Cover Me, features covers in every style imaginable.

Both blogs have links to mp3s for your listening enjoyment. Both are worth checking out.
