Friday Mixtape #45 - Use Somebody - The Covers mix

This week's mixtape is another themed mix... it's made up entirely of cover songs... and covers done in my favorite way... completely different to the original! It's pretty mellow, which might be a good musical choise for my fellow Irish dwellers as we need to calm ourselves after the Paddys Week festivities.

Also included of course is a Big Star cover in honor of the late Alex Chilton who passed away this week. Enjoy.
