Marie Mazziotti

Losing My Religion by Marie Mazziotti

This acoustic guitar cover uses Marie's deep and haunting vocal stylings to great effect. Buy it on iTunes (or hear longer preview)

28
Betsy Palmer

Losing My Religion by Betsy Palmer

Simple and sparse, this version features mandolins (but not exactly the mandolins of the original) and a stand-up bass, which gives this somber tune an almost bouncy feel. Buy it on iTunes (or hear longer preview)

32
Peter Buffett

It's The End of the World as We Know It by Peter Buffett

Not exactly sure how to describe this one, it's sort of electronic, sort of... I don't know, just give it a listen. Buy it on iTunes (or hear longer preview)

33
The Brown Derbys

Nightswimming by The Brown Derbies

Barbershop quartet anyone? You haven't heard this song, until you've heard this a capella version. Buy it on iTunes (or hear longer preview)

34
Shiny Happy People

Nightswimming by Shiny Happy People

With a name like Shiny Happy People, you would assume that this is one band that has REM covers down. You'd be right. Buy it on iTunes (or hear longer preview)

35
Phil Pritchett

World Leader Pretend by Phil Pritchett

At first it seems kind of weird to hear Mario Brothers-style synths on a classic REM song, but once you get used to it, it's kinda cool. Buy it on iTunes (or hear longer preview)
