MIMS098: In Love With The Cover Version (Part 1) — Hosted By Lexis

Recording a “cover versions special” has been on my to-do list for a few years now so i’m very happy to finally cross it off my list. Covers are for me a bit of a love/hate relationship, as for most music lovers i’m sure – there simply is no in between, a cover either works or it doesn’t!

So here we go! This is a two-part special featuring my favorite versions. Serbian version of Tears for Fears: check. Egyptian version of “Tom’s Diner”: check. Czech version of Dusty Springfield: check. And many many more of my personal favorites.

Hope you discover a few lovely tunes. Part 2 will be out in the next few days. Wishing you all a nice day!
