How many times have you listened to “West End Girls” and thought to yourself, I wonder what this would sound like on mandolin? Our guess: zero. Frankly, Jon McLeod aka. the Focussed Distraction never wondered that either. However, a random series of events led to him finding out exactly what it sounds like. Now you can learn too. McLeod tells Cover Me about this cover’s genesis:
You all submit so many great covers it’s hard to keep up. When we fall behind, we gather the best and brightest in a Submission Roundup.
Our inbox is just about bursting. You guys send so many great songs I wish we could feature them all individually. Sadly, we can’t. Instead, we’re beginning a new feature: Submissions Roundup. It’s just what it sounds like: a barebones post collecting all the submissions we didn’t want to fall through the cracks. Next to each, you’ll find a link to the artist’s website.
Do you have something to submit? Send it along here!
