This might be difficult for even me, with a huge collection of covers! Here's the idea for this CD swap. Let's make a CD for 2 partners of at least 15 COVER songs.

When you put together the CD, connect the covers from cover artist to cover artist, for example:

  1. a Beatles cover
  2. a cover done by the Beatles
  3. a cover done by the person the Beatles covered in #2 4 a cover done by the person covered in #3.

Does this make sense? If you come to the end of a chain of songs and you're stuck, either use a different cover of the same song to get yourself going again, or start another chain of songs. Sound interesting?

Please have at least a 4.5 rating and newbies welcome with a well filled out profile.

Here's another example:

  1. Inside You by The Wonder Stuff (Pop Will Eat Itself)
  2. Love Missile F1-11 by Pop Will Eat Itself (Sigue Sigue Sputnik)
  3. Virus by Sigue Sigue Sputnik (KMFDM)
  4. Material Girl by KMFDM (Madonna)
  5. American Pie by Madonna (Don McLean)
  6. He's Got You by Don McLean (Hank Cochran)
  7. Angel Flying too Close to the Ground by Hank Cochran (Willie Nelson)
  8. Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay by Willie Nelson

I admit I got a lot of help with this list from allmusic.com!

I really want to join this, but because its difficult, I need to see if I could do it first before signing myself up! :)

I'd love to join, but that sounds too confusing - I read it 3 times, and I get the gist of it, but I don't think I have a collection that large that would work for it - I can see by your example of only 8 songs you go too quickly into the past, Wille Nelson would be hard to follow up for songs 9 and 10.... if you could do this differently.....

From Willie Nelson you could go to Sad Songs & Waltzes, covered by Cake!

Just try it out - there's no grading, just throw some covers on a CD! Thanks for joining, everyone!

BTW, what I meant from my last post was that personally, I'd be happy to just get a CD of covers - the links between people can be 2 or 3 songs in a row, then you can start over if you need to.

i think i'm going to watch it and try to put together a list. i have so many covers of old stuff, 70's and 80's, i'm sure i'll get stuck once i do a jump back from Soft Cell.

Hmmm.. Got 13 linked, I think I'll just toss in a couple of my favortie covers to make up the 15, 'cause for the life of me I can't connect in another 2 without getting too repetitive!

This was loads of fun to do, I'll get it sent off within the next couple of days :D I want to find more like this
