the Spoon covers archive :: 22 covers and counting!

Just a few days ago I shared three Spoon covers and said to let me know if you guys had any more. Well, I didn’t quite expect you to point me to almost a dozen other covers, but I’m sure glad you did. Some of you left links to MP3s and someone left a link to this helpful post. So thanks very much for that.

Then I did a little more digging of my own and unearthed a few more covers, including one of Britt Daniel doing Wolf Parade’s “Modern World.” I know, right? Mind. Blown. So for the second time, I give you an as-complete-as-I-can-get-it collection of all of the covers one of my favorite bands has done — this time around, it’s Spoon. I’ll be adding more as I find them — with your help, hopefully — but for now, just enjoy!
