Welcome back! This post is doing DOUBLE DUTY as a standard playlist post but also as a crowdsourcing exercise for one of the Day 11 groups next week, a themed group on “21st Century Covers of 20th Century Songs”.

There are two criteria here. One is that it’s a genuinely transformative cover, not just an ‘interpolation’ or some John Lewis piano shit. So like “Comfortably Numb” by Scissor Sisters. The other is that it’s something we haven’t polled before. So NOT like “Comfortably Numb” by Scissor Sisters.

Suggestions in comments please! Now onto the playlists:
