Now, we’ve said on many occasions that we’re not great lovers of covers. However, some of the cover versions we heard in 2010 may well have done enough to change our minds permanently.
So without further ado…
10 Holly Miranda – Nobody Sees Me Like You Do mp3 (Yoko Ono cover)
9 First Aid Kit –
When I Grow Up mp3 (Fever Ray cover) Link removed by DMCA – no reason given…
8 Emily Reo – On The Beach mp3 (Neil Young cover)
7 Fever Ray – Mercy Street mp3 (Peter Gabriel cover)
6 Dead Luke – Ghost Rider mp3 (Suicide cover)

Download Phosphorescent – Big Red Sun Blues mp3 (Lucinda Williams cover)
And finally, we don’t post remixes because by and large we can’t be bothered with them. This was one exception to prove our rule. The Mystery Jets given the classic spacerock treatment by The Wooden Shjips.
