Cover Versions: Triple J’s Like A Version Top Ten Covers

It’s normally for Friday morning on JJJ radio not Monday but oh well, it’s ten too of just my faves at the start this week for everyone, anyone who wants to have a listen/look at them! This little bit of Aussie radio show has been very popular over the ten years or more that’s it’s be going for, how long has it been going? Anyway this covers everything from a couple of the early days before they even had cameras filming them to just last year or two. I might be getting old because they’re no young whippersnapper so maybe I’ll need to second list of newer acts sometime? Does seems I like classic Aussie tunes cover by Aussies or Aussie’s doing pop songs or both, enjoy!

That’s The Drones’ own track Oh My on the end of that last clip by the way, call it bonus track today because I can’t find it without that. But the rest are all the ten covers which have become my faves over the years because I do like/love a good, great cover track.


How about you, have I miss your fave/s? Why not share them with me now?

  1. I am SO doing this on my blog William! Great idea. Stop having great blog posts, you’ll be getting sick of my comments, lol! Very fine choices, esp. ‘Life On Mars’ by Sarah B, (that’d be my choice too, she’s one of my CA). I’d also have ‘West Coast’ by James Vincent McMorrow (Lana Del Rey), ‘Into My Arms’ by Emma Louise (Nick Cave), ‘Go’ by Jebediah (Chemical Brothers), ‘Hey Now’ by Karnivool (London Grammar), ‘Electric Feel’ by Tash Sultana (MGMT), ‘Heart’s A Mess’ by Missy Higgins (Gotye) and ‘Confide In Me’ by Tame Impala (Kylie Minogue)! And more! But will save them for my post! =)
