Who's up for another CD swap? This concept is less involved than the last one, and less nebulous than the next one, so if you've been reluctant to join this is the time. Details (plus a bonus video from my Random 10) below the fold.
In comments to Steve's guilty pleasures post, there was almost as much talk about cover versions as there was about the songs themselves. Which makes sense, if you think about it: the best literary adaptations are made from mediocre novels (Godfather, anyone?); the best remakes are of movies that weren't very good the first time; and the best cover versions are of the cheesiest songs.

So this time, your CDs will be all cover versions--covers that you like better than the original. (More or less; if a few great covers of great originals slip in, that's okay too.) The cheesier the original, the better.

Let me know in comments if you're interested.

And here's the bonus video:
