Eighties Covers Redux!

0
0

I took my Eighties covers project from last year, expanded it, shuffled the order, and replaced some weak tracks. I think it's pretty killer. If you downloaded it last year, definitely replace the old version with this one.

I'd like to do a write up on all the songs, but since there's almost 150 of them, for reasons of space I won't. I'll let the tracklist speak for itself.
There's indie bands, folk versions, some country, blues, punk, straightahead pop, a cappela tracks... It's a smorgasbord. 

The sound quality is great throughout. Out of all the songs here, there's maybe 5 YouTube audio rips. I've also revamped the metal covers (Volume 7), and it's just awesome now! Dig in. (And the last song on volume 6 was a typo: it's a choral cover of Toto's "Africa)
