listomania: top 5 covers of 2010

Apologies that this article isn't linked beyond the first couple entries. It will be when my computer has more memory and isn't running like me in November 2009 (read:snail's pace).

Without a doubt, my favorite cover album of the past year (and possibly of all time) was The Bird and the Bee's brilliant Interpreting the Masters, Vol. 1: A Tribute to Daryl Hall and John Oates

I picked one for the top five, so as not to overwhelm. There were plenty of other great covers (you can Google 'em) and here they are:

5. Juniper Tar covering "Via Chicago" on the excellent MuzzleofBees.com compilation Wisco: A Tribute to Wilco

4. Robert Plant covering Low's "Monkey"

3. The Bird & The Bee covering Hall & Oates' "Rich Girl"

2. Cee-Lo Green covering Band of Horses' "No One's Gonna Love You"

1. Bon Iver covering Peter Gabriel's "Come Talk to Me"

  1. Wow, nice! Just added their album to my Amazon wish list.


Thank you for stopping by The Accidental Wisconsinite. Your feedback is welcome, but please be civilized. Remember, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all!
