Cover Statistics

I learned a lot during this month's challenge. First, and most important, don't try to make snazzy cover art after you are already drunk. Second, despite the large amount of Britney spears covers out there, the Beatles were the most popular covered artist amongst our group of mix CDs. Third, there is a serious obsession with The Crystal's song He Hit Me (It Felt Like a Kiss), particularly Grizzly Bear's version, though Hole's version got some love, too. I think that's enough learning for one month, now for some graphs. Don't forget to vote in the poll for July's theme over there on the right.

Other popular songs included:
A Forest (Cure cover) by Bat For Lashes (included on 4 mixes)
When You Were Mine (Prince cover) by Cyndi Lauper (included on 4 mixes)
3 different versions of When Doves Cry (Prince cover) by Ginuwine, The Be Good Tanyas and Patti Smith
