The League Of Extraordinary Tracks 5: COVER VERSIONS Poll
Read and comment

Into the second half of Season 1, and this week’s theme is COVER VERSIONS. Our learned participants have selected 12 tunes including covers of 3 previous Pollhalla entrants from the main polls, so this should be a close-fought one.

As usual there are only two rules!

Pick UP TO FOUR songs.

DO NOT PICK any track you already knew (in this version!).

Go here for the PLAYLISTS for this week. Good luck all competitors!

The League Of Extraordinary Tracks 5: COVER VERSIONS Playlists
Read and comment

This week’s theme is COVER VERSIONS and as usual I’ve tried to arrange them in an order that makes some vague kind of sense (to me, anyway). There’s one track which is greyed out for me on the Spotify playlist – Sara Isaksson & Rebecka Tornqvist’s version of “Gaucho” – it’s track 11 on the playlist so make sure you check that out on the YouTube!

When you’ve heard them all go to the poll post and have your say!
