More on Songs
Say the radio just played a song that sounded familiar and it didn’t sound quite right. What they probably played was a cover, a song recorded by an artist other than the original artist or composer, usually with some variation. If you want to figure out who did the cover – or if you’ve got an old favorite on which you’d like to hear a modern take – this site is a good place to start. You can search their database of over 50,000 songs with details as sketchy or complete as you’d like, and you can even submit your own if you feel you’ve heard a cover that isn’t listed on their site.
