Inspired by this post over on metalmusicblog.com, I put together a show consisting entirely of cover songs. Some of these covers are pretty silly (Children of Bodom covering Britney Spears?), some are pretty faithful to the original, and some transform the song completely, giving it an entirely new vibe.
Here’s the playlist:
- Oops, I Did It Again (Britney Spears cover) by Children of Bodom
- Where the Streets Have No Name (I Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You) (U2/Frankie Valli cover) by The Pet Shop Boys
- Two Thousand Light Years From Home (Rolling Stones cover) by The Eden House
- Like a Hurricane (Neil Young cover) by The Mission U.K.
- In Every Dream Home a Heartache (Roxy Music cover) by Fields of the Nephilim
- Born to Die (Lana Del Rey cover) by Tiamat
- And There Will Your Heart Be Also (Fields of the Nephilim cover) by Liar in Wait
- You Shook Me All Night Long (AC/DC cover) by Leslie King
- Losing My Religion (REM cover) by Karelia
- Xavier (Dead Can Dance cover) by Paradise Lost
