1980

I once had a blog dedicated to cover versions, I really do like a cover version, admittedly some are shocking, but other people doing other peoples songs appeals to me greatly. I had a series starting from 1980 covering the hits of that particular year, we’ll give it another outing and see how it goes, to be fair fair I’ll more than likely get very bored very quickly.
