Now That's What I Call Indie Covers! volume 1

The idea behind this was a simple one - collect enough mp3s of indie bands covering top 40 hits to fill up a cd.


01 David Byrne - I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Whitney Houston)
02 Ted Leo - Since U Been Gone/Maps (Kelly Clarkson/Yeah Yeah Yeahs)
03 Ben Gibbard - Girls Just Wanna Have Fun (Cyndi Lauper)
04 Tilly and the Wall - Hey Ya! (Outkast)
05 Rilo Kiley - Simply Irresistable (Robert Palmer)
06 Flaming Lips - Under Pressure (Queen/Bowie)
07 Of Montreal - Can't Explain (The Who)
08 Superwolf - Ignition (R. Kelly)
09 Bishop Allen - Ring of Fire (Cash)
10 Ben Gibbard - Complicated (Avril)
11 The Unicorns - The Clap/I Just Can't Get You Out of My Head/P.I.M.P. (Kylie/50 Cent)
12 Elliott Smith - All My Rowdy Friends Have Settled Down (Williams Jr.)
13 Sufjan Stevens - This One Goes Out To the One I Love (REM)
14 Rufus Wainwright - Somewhere Over the Rainbow
15 Rilo Kiley - Let My Love Open the Door (Townshend)
16 The Mountain Goats - The Sign (Ace of Base)
17 Belle and Sebastian - Dancing Queen (ABBA)
