Songs in the Key of Mix

Out of 5 is a great idea perfectly executed: every week, 5 people chip in at least one track relating to a theme, one designs an album cover, and the results go live as downloadable MP3s and a Flash player. At least, that’s what I can glean from the site itself and participant Khoi Vinh’s post about the cover he designed.

This week’s theme is “Covers that eclipsed the originals.” Check it out just for Miles Davis’ cover of “Time After Time.” It’s kind of amazing.

(Also great: M. Ward’s version of “Let’s Dance.”)
