We're finally back at it one recovered hard drive and several months later with our Top 200 Cover Songs of All-Time. On this episode we're discussing numbers 80 through 51, and this is where business and weirdness begin to pick up. We have jangle pop covers of piano jazz, piano jazz covers of Michael Jackson, a bunch of classic soul covers, Ice T getting mad at sawdust eating vegans, several covers that succeed at the seemingly impossible, several covers that you didn't even know were covers, a lively discussion of the movie Scotland, PA, bawdy songs from the 1700's, Vietnam draftees doing funk covers of the Mamas and the Papas, and so much more.
