Covers II

Well, there was a lot of music worth listening to at Covers II night. Some of these videos are definitely worth checking out. War Pigs by Sabbath, I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor, the original version of I Put a Spell On You, Hey Joe and Ghost Riders in the Sky are fantastic. We could probably do a Covers III at some point, but I think we would have to tighten the theme up a little bit. Anyways, enjoy.
