Cover Chain: The Cure to Little Richard

This is the second cover chain I have presented here on Blogcritics. I love these so much I just had to share! A cover chain is a playlist fully composed of connected remakes. The list starts with a cover, in this case The Cure doing Depeche Mode’s “World In My Eyes”. The next song is also a cover song, but as performed by the artist who was covered in the previous song and so on. These are very fun to put together as it takes a bit of research and you always discover something new. I encourage you to give it a try and post them in the comments for all to enjoy.

Here’s the full 10-song playlist including the song title, the artist name, the album name and the artist who originally recorded the song.

1. The Cure – “World In My Eyes”
from the album “Join The Dots: B-Sides & Rarities”
originally by Depeche Mode

from the album “I Feel Loved”
originally by Iggy Pop & The Stooges

3. Iggy Pop – “China Girl”

5. The Pixies – “Ain’t That Pretty At All”

    I think this post may have been influenced by The Covers Project, no?

    I’d be curious about creating a chain of identically-titled songs. For example, there’s a song titled “Mother” on both The Wall by Pink Floyd and Lennon Legend: The Very Best of John Lennon. Lennon Legend also has a song called “Woman,” which is the name of one of the songs on Greatest Hits by the James Gang. And to wrap up the chain, both The Wall and the James Gang’s Greatest Hits have a track called “Stop.”

    Is anybody up for the challenge to the longest chain?
