We’re really into the idea of one artist respecting another artist enough to recreate their song. A cover song can be a complete disaster (William Shatner’s “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds,” anyone?) or a history maker (Hendrix’s “All Along The Watchtower”). The songs above aren’t necessarily our 23 favorite covers ever, but it’s a collection of songs we love performed by artists we love.

Check out the links to free songs, or better yet, purchase them!

With love,

Nate and Kate
