Covers Project Vol. 15

Here we go again. Probably the most popular of all the UHM posts, these covers mixes are an opportunity to pay homage to some great songs and salvage some of the worst. I'm not gonna tip my hat over which is which on this one (although it's probably a surprise to no one if I admit I was never a fan of the Ice-spay Irls-gay), and instead let the listeners make those calls themselves.

I hadn't heard either of those, Anon. Glad to see someone is mining old Tom Robinson Band! It's always surprised me that nobody's re-made "2-4-6-8 Motorway."
