I have a slight obsession with old school soul and R&B. Sam Cooke and Otis Redding are some of my most favorite artists of all time. I can totally see myself pulling a Duckie from the movie Pretty in Pink tearing around a record store rocking out to Otis. So I was intrigued when I came across a Spoon cover of Cooke's "Bring it On Home To Me." I like Spoon but covering Sam Cooke can be kind of dangerous....but I kind of like their take on it.

Fun remixes and mash ups of popular songs also make me really really ridiculously happy. And when I came across this little gem by Irn Monkey a few weeks ago, I listened to it for like 3 days straight. Johnny Cash + Wu Tang Clan = a lot of fun. Also fun is Jaydiohead. Jay-Z songs mixed with Radiohead songs. This is my favorite one...
