I've been listening to a lot of covers of songs (and their original versions) lately and that is what's inspired me to create this swap! This will be pretty simple; all you have to do is send a list of ten covers (song title and artist) PLUS the original artist/performer (not always the same as who wrote the song) to each of your partners via e-mail. (Please BCC so the e-mail addresses are hidden and don't forget to include the swap name and your username.)

Here are a few examples:

  1. "Big Yellow Taxi" - Counting Crows and Vanessa Carlton, originally by Joni Mitchell
  2. "How Deep is Your Love" - the bird and the bee, originally by Bee Gees
  3. "Barbara Ann" - The Beach Boys, originally by The Regents

Links via YouTube, Spotify or elsewhere are highly encouraged, but not required.

Feel free to include anything else music-related in your e-mail if you want to (more covers, comments on songs, what radio stations you listen to and links to listen online, new artists you've discovered, etc.).

Since this is an electronic swap, I'm going to be relatively lenient on the rating requirement (4.50 and no recent unexplained 1s or 3s with no attempt to resend/make it right with the other swapper... if your rating is less than 4.50 and you'd really like to join please message me) and will allow newbies with profiles that have been filled out. If someone happens to flake, I'd be happy to send you my list (plus more songs if you're unfortunate enough to have two or more partners not send... I've got an originals/covers playlist with 134 songs so far so at five partners each I have you all covered! ;)) Please contact me if you have a partner(s) who couldn't follow through.

Yay, new music!

Love this Idea! And love covers. Doing my May Playlist swap I realized a Fair amount of mine were covers so it will be fun to find more

Great idea for a swap! I love hearing old favorites done by new artists.

Doesn't Spotify cost money or need a download? It'd probably be better to have links to youtube, etc where everyone can listen.

jaz1yn 06/23/2013 #

Spotify is free. You can choose to pay for premium which allows you to listen with no ads.

In the description I said links are optional, but encouraged. I mentioned YouTube first then Spotify, but said you can use whatever links you want if you choose to include them. Yes, Spotify requires a download, but it's free and once you do it you won't have to again... just updates like anything else.

Hey everyone, I sent out mine last night, if I'm one of your swap partners and you didn't get it by now let me know and I'll resend/send it to you via DM here x

I was just thinking of doing this type of swap! Too bad I found this too late. :(

I have sent to my 5 partners, it is from a hotmail address. If you do not receive it please let me know.

Hi @tweeandbiscuits and @MauiMami - If you would like to message your partners I would suggest that you do that via PM on Swap-bot; they may not see your comments here. It is possible that they may just be busy and/or are taking their time. I actually still have to rate two of my partners... life has been hectic and I've been taking the time to listen to each song before rating.

@MrsMacT - So sorry that you found this too late. I am not sure if or when I will host a second covers swap, but intend to do another themed music swap sometime after August 5. That swap will be for songs with people's names in the titles.

Here's the link to the new swap! http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/152185

I always leave a comment on swap page with electronic swaps - if there are a lot of partners I do not want to PM them all individually. I do it to cover myself bc everyone's email inboxes have different filters.
