The Sweeter The Sin, The Better The Taste In My Mouth

Here's a playlist of mellow covers. A few of these are downright superb.

One in particular worth noting. If you listen to only one song here, I highly recommend you check out track #4: Any Way You Want It. Clem Snide's cover of the Journey classic is really... well... it's both surprising and a treat.

Most of these are really obvious, but here's a list with the original artists listed below, just in case.

  1. Running To Stand Still | Elbow
  2. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun | Greg Laswell
          (Cindy Lauper)
  3. You've Got To Hide Your Love Away | Eddie Vedder
          (The Beatles)
  4. Any Way You Want It | Clem Snide
  5. Up To My Neck In You | Mark Kozelek
  6. Eye In The Sky | Jonatha Brooke
          (Alan Parsons Project)
  7. The District Sleeps Alone Tonight | Jonna Lee
          (The Postal Service)
  8. Nothing Compares 2 U | Stereophonics
          (The Family )
  9. Frank Mills | The Lemonheads
          (from "Hair")
  10. White Wedding | The Harvey Girls
          (Billy Idol)
  11. Blasphemous Rumours | Duncan Sheik
          (Depeche Mode)
  12. Who Can It Be Now? | Colin Hay
          (Men At Work)

Does 'Who Can It Be Now' count as a cover being that Colin Hay was the lead singer from Men At Work? I suppose it doesn't, unless it counts as him covering his own song, but I care. It's a fun one to add to the playlist.

Also, Nothing Compares 2 U was written by Prince for his side project, The Family, but the version most probably know is by Sinead O'Connor.
