under the covers

A radio station in my area is calling for listeners’ favorite cover songs for a theme over Valentine’s Day weekend – Under the Covers. Here’s what I’d play:

Between the Buried and Me – Colorblind (Counting Crows)
Ted Leo – Since U Been Gone/Maps (Kelly Clarkson/Yeah Yeah Yeahs)
Colin Meloy – Cupid (Sam Cooke)
Death Cab for Cutie – This Charming Man (The Smiths)
Magnetic Fields – The Book of Love (Peter Gabriel)
Peter Gabriel – Flume (Bon Iver)
She & Him  – You Really Got a Hold On Me (The Miracles)

Ready to let me be a guest DJ, Triple M?
