This week the three hosts Amit Sharma, Merlin Alderslade (THAT is a metal name!) and Stephen Hill were talking about one of my favourite subjects.....Cover Versions!!
I love a good cover. Whether it's straight covers or a cover that you didn't see coming ... I love it.
For those of you that listen but couldn't be bothered to find/listen to the covers, here they are. You can either listen to the podcast again or look up who the original artist is! I've done enough pulling these together for you.
They each did their Top 5 (sorry, High 5) cover songs. There were a few honourable mentions and some hates too. I've added a link to 5 of the honourable mentions at the end.
There were a few surprising noticeable exemptions, but they aren't my lists :0)
