Covers Project (Vol. XIII)

It only seems appropriate that the 13th volume of the covers project would coincide with Hallowe'en night. There's nothing much in the way of spooky involved, however - but I did take a different approach to this covers mix. It focuses entirely on mellow/ballad versions of songs, tunes that, while totally cool, always felt out of place when I tried cramming them on previous mixes.

We'll be back to the regularly scheduled programming come next installment.

Hi Roy - is asking for an encryption key. Can you let us know what it is?

Anyway, my love of covers is at war with my dislike of ballads, and my brain is in a knot over this one. Gonna have to give it a listen to sort this whole mess out.

Not sure why that's needed. Must be something I did with upload.

Welp, this link was removed for copyright infringement. Seems there was someone who didn't like the idea of their music getting heard. Ain't that peculiar.

That's unfortunate - hopefully you can find out who that was, delete their song, and issue v.xiii with the rest.

Amazing collections, and I know it's a bit of work to compile. Thank you - I've discovered many new artists here as a result.
