Today, dear listeners, the OST brings you the long-gestating “difficult” 19th podcast, Covers. It’s a bit like Remixes but with less bleeps and clicks, and more Johnny Cash, which can’t be a bad thing.

We won’t lie, it was a hard track list to pull together. Being as painstakingly meticulous as we are, we approach these matters as if crouched over a wiry time-bomb with a pair of pliers – with great care and attention, and highly stressed – but we’re sure the end product will satisfy those with an appetite for our goods.

This was the only notable omission. A timeless cinematic masterpiece, we’re sure you’ll agree. Almost better than the original, for all the wrong reasons.

And while we're sure many of you will have already seen this video, being the work of poignant brilliance that it is, we had to link it. No no, I just got some dust in my eye. Honestly.

Til' next time...



Niceeeee set. Always feel that No Doubt cover is a bit of a guilty pleasure but it never fails to put me in a good mood. Some classics covered originally n beautifully

Yeah, Baronessah, it's a great version. If you're not familiar already, Nostalgia 77 and Alice Russell (who sings on that cover) are both worth checking out.


The Seven Nation Army cover is amazing!
