Episode # 19 - Originals vs. Cover Versions

Undoubtedly, cover versions of famous songs can be simple rip offs BUT there are many cover versions of songs by incredible artists that were meant as a tribute/homage to the original composer/lyricist. On this episode we have a look at some cover versions and originals to highlight the fun that can be had by listening to these versions.Many of the songs revolve around POEM’s Thomas Janak’s musical hero Vince Clarke but the show also features artists like The Prodigy, Gene Simmons of Kiss and OneTwo.
