Sweetheart: Our Favorite Artists Sing Our Favorite Long Songs is the latest in the line of blockbuster compilations that’s been crowding up your RSS feeds. This one is special because it benefits the destitute shareholders of the Starbucks corporation, which now qualifies as a post-economic meltdown charity case. The tracklist is tight. Not all the songs are new (you can hear Death Cab’s take on the Cure’s “Love Song” 11 months ago if you want), but A.C. Newman’s take on “Take On Me” seems good and fresh. Literally.
Sweetheart: Our Favorite Artists Sing Our Favorite Long Songs available via Starbucks.
