Well it might not be a sell out perse...but I have officially gone cover. While some find covers, remixes, and mashups annoying and a detriment to the original etc. etc. I find that those people are commonly music snobs so screw it I am not snob lets post some covers.

I love a good remix, cover and mashup as it adds something you didn't expect or approaches the song in different way (Jose Gonzalez covering the Knife's Heartbeats is a great example). So here it is some tasty covers (some actually are probably remixes but whatever). Enjoy! or not.

Mp3: Shinehead - Billy Jean (Michael Jackson)
Mp3: DJ Nu Mark & Pomo - Imagine (John Lennon)
Mp3: Greyboy with Bart Davenport- Geneive (Cymande)*
Mp3: Tiga - Burnin down the house (Talking heads)
Mp3: Yonderboi - Riders On The Storm (The Doors)
Mp3: This Kid Named Miles - Ring of fire (Johnny Cash)
Mp3: Pete Kuzma feat. Bilal - High and Dry (Radiohead Cover)

It should be noted that I couldn't have done this without the help of the people over Ubiquity as many of these songs are off the covertastic Rewind! series.

nice job. i love those rewind! series records as well. and i really like what Yonderboi did w/ "Riders on the Storm." Actually, Yonderboi's The Shallow and Profound (that includes the Riders remix) is a great album. He also does an interesting rework of Astor Piazzolla's "Milonga Del Mar."
