For the third installment of “Under the Covers”, I decided to celebrate my favourite decade – the 90s – by playing a selection of covers of 90s songs, as well as some covers of earlier tracks recorded by seminal 90s acts.

01. Jawbox – “Cornflake Girl” [Tori Amos]
02. Nick Cave – “Disco 2000” [Pulp]
03. The Killing Moon – “You Oughta Know” [Alanis Morrisette]
04. The Kooks – “All That She Wants” [Ace of Base]
05. Biffy Clyro – “Buddy Holly” [Weezer]
06. Weezer – “Wonderwall” [Oasis]
07. Klaxons – “No Diggity” [Blackstreet]
08. Just Jack – “Lovefool” [The Cardigans]
09. All Saints – “Lady Marmalade” [Labelle]
10. 5ive – “We Will Rock You” [Queen]
11. Ben Folds – “Bitches Ain’t Shit” [Dr Dre]
12. Holly Throsby – “Berlin Chair” [You Am I]
13. Travis – “Baby One More Time” [Britney Spears]

The show went quite well. I had a bit more of a voice than last week, which was good, although a couple of times I had to quickly fade to a song to avoid coughing on air, and I sounded like I was crying. If you were listening, I wasn’t.

A few of the tracks that I played came from the Radio 1 Established 1967 compilation, an album which I highly recommend. Celebrating Radio 1’s 40th anniversary, the double album has a cover for each year that Radio 1 has been on air, including Kylie Minogue singing Roxy Music’s “Love is the Drug”, and a great cover of “Band on the Run” by the Foo Fighters. Do yourself a favour, and check this one out.

Keep tuning in to Under the Covers, Mondays 9-10pm on SYN 90.7fm [or stream online].
