20 Sweet: Cover Songs (Volume II)

Last year, 20 Sweet told you about some great covers, or songs in which one artist interprets the work of another.

But 20 wasn’t enough…so to help quench the eternal cover-thirst that I know some of us most definitely have, here are 20 more. Enjoy, and feel free to post other covers the Princeton world would be better off knowing!
