I love covers, and Naive Melody (This Must Be the Place) from The Talking Heads’ album Speaking in Tongues has been a popular song to cover. I’ve been adding versions I find of it to a YouTube playlist.

I think Car Seat Headrest and Naked Giant’s live version, which starts off the playlist, is a classic.

What YouTube (and other playlist tools) need is a way to annotate entries, because playlists are a form of blogging.

Yes, when you were making mix tapes or burning CDs, you were blogging, though you didn’t have the words for it. Or maybe that was more like an APA.
