Finding indie artists of today covering Frank Sinatra on iTunes inspired me to look through my music library for some more singers of today covering the hits of yesterday, preferred songs from the 30s, 40s or 50s. Well, this was the plan but finally it turned out that I wasn't able to find covers of such old songs. The second approach was gathering cover songs twice as old as the performer but this rule has been broken if I found a cover song that was too awesome to exclude it from the list. Special thanks go to the people at the Flowerbox at KGRL's website for their contributions.

    Unfortunately does last.fm have different adaptations for the different countries. Thus I can't find out what songs are available outside my country, that sucks. If there is a demand for listening to special tracks or the whole of it send me a PM.
