Music Monday: Cover Song Playlist and Game!

A while back, a couple friends and I were playing Scrabble. Part way through, we realized the album we were listening to, one that I hadn’t heard before, was completely cover songs. We spent the rest of the album attempting to remember the original artists—not so easy when the genres were completely flipped. Seeing an opportunity to indulge our current ADD mindset, our ‘DJ’ searched for more cover songs for us to guess.

A new game was born!

Or at least a new game for us. We spent a couple hours guessing songs and laying down Scrabble words. Suffice it to say, that Scrabble game took several times longer than usual.

After this night of musical fun, I was inspired to create a playlist of cover songs. Some are very popular, some are obscure, but all wonderfully pay homage to the originals.

Can you name all of the original artists? Did I miss your favorite cover song? Let me know and I’ll add it to the list!
