Cover CD tracklist

Thanks to my complete inability to make a decision, I made like four versions of this mix depending on who I gave them to. Here's basically what they looked like:

Take On Me - AC Newman (covering A-ha)
Maybe I'm Amazed - Jem (covering Paul McCartney)
Nobody Does It Better - Aimee Mann (covering Carly Simon)
Iron Man - The Cardigans (covering Black Sabbath)
Gold Dust Woman - Hole (covering Fleetwood Mac)
Venus as a Boy - Corinne Bailey Rae (covering Björk)
(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - Devo (covering The Rolling Stones)
Strangers in the Night - Cake (covering (the song made famous by) Frank Sinatra)
Personal Jesus - Johnny Cash (covering Depeche Mode)
The Passenger - Michael Hutchence (covering Iggy Pop)
The Man Who Sold the World - Nirvana (covering David Bowie)
Rock the Casbah - Solar Twins (covering The Clash)
Running Up That Hill - Placebo (covering Kate Bush)
Love & Other Bruises - Splendid (covering Air Supply)
Transmission - Hot Chip (covering Joy Division)
Baby One More Time - Travis (covering Britney Spears (sort of))
We Will Become Silhouettes - The Shins (covering The Postal Service)
She Don't Use Jelly - Ben Folds Five (covering The Flaming Lips)
Across the Universe - Fiona Apple (covering The Beatles)

I also rotated in For What It's Worth by the Candy Skins, a couple different Cake songs, and Hurt by Johnny Cash (overplayed but good). I really like Fly on the Windscreen by God Lives Underwater and SP's version of You're All I've Got Tonight but I tried to lay off since I've beaten them to death on past mixes. Let me know if you want a copy; I'll try to personalize it. Otherwise I think this has kept me from getting anything accomplished for long enough.
