Iconic Songs, Uncovered

Thursday, November 24, 2011

Behind every great song is a great songwriter. But behind every great cover song lurks a masterful musician. Today, we look at cover versions that were so good, they outshone the original. Joining us is Kyle Ryan, managing editor for The Onion's AV Club, and Tom Moon, music critic and author of the book “1,000 Recordings to Hear Before You Die.”

This is a repeat broadcast of Soundcheck.

Very good site you have here but I was wanting to know if you
knew of any message boards that cover the same topics discussed
in this article? I'd really like to be a part of online community where I can get feed-back from other experienced people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Appreciate it!
