Radio Station of the Day: Covers

Joe Cocker signing With a Little Help From My Friends. John Lennon singing Stand By Me. Dixie Chicks signing Landslide. Artists you know, singing someone else's music - that's what's playing over at Covers by Soma.fm. And it's totally delightful.

It's almost as if the artist has to work a little harder to make sure they're honoring the song their essentially signing a tribute to.

It's also been a fun way to appreciate artists or songs I don't usually listen to. For example, I can't typically stand the Cranberries -- but their cover of Go Your Own Way totally works.

Give the station a a listen, you'll be glad you did.
