21. Neon Trees “Everybody Talks”

22. Joshua Radin “Fly Me to the Moon” Frank Sinatra Cover

23. Jamie Lono on The Voice “Folsom Prison Blues” His voice and that guitar makes this a really great simple cover, something I don’t say about Johnny Cash covers often.

24. The Wanted “Glad You Came” Guilty pleasure song.

25. M83 “Graveyard Girl”

26. Blind Pilot “Half Moon” Blind Pilot is a band that I consistently love. All of their albums are really good, but this is still one of my favorites.

27. Gaslight Anthem “Here Comes Your Man” My favorite song off their new album Handwritten.

28. The Lumineers “Ho Hey” Far and away, my biggest summer anthem obsession of late. So good, so perfect for driving in the country with the windows down.

29. Regina Spektor “How”

30. Alabama Shakes “I Ain’t the Same”

31. Bon Iver “I Can’t Make You Love Me / Nick of Time”

32. Maroon 5 covering Bob Dylan “I Shall Be Released”

33. Juliet Simms on The Voice “It’s A Man’s, Man’s, Man’s World

34. Xaphoon Jones “The Jackson Pit”

35. Band of Skulls “Light of the Morning” This is the perfect band to cover Led Zeppelin, very much rock.

36. Ellie Goulding “Lights (Shook Remix)”

37. Chet Faker “Love and Feelings”

38. Neon Trees “Mad Love”

45. College “A Real Hero”

46. Electric Youth “Right Back to You”

47. Kill Paris “Shades of Funk”

48. Glee Cast “Shake It Out” I actually prefer this version to the Florence original. It just sounds so ethereal with the three voice harmony.

49. M83 “Skin of the Night”

50. Xylos “Summerlong”

51. Passion Pit “Take A Walk”

52. Alex Clare “Too Close”

53. Katharine McPhee on SMASH “Touch Me” SMASH is insanely great, not just because I love musicals, but the singing talent on the show is truly remarkable. Definitely prefer it to Glee these days. This song is supposed to be an option for Marilyn Monroe’s death scene.

54. Desire “Under Your Spell”

55. Old Crow Medicine Show “Wagon Wheel”

56. M83 “We Own the Sky”

57. Flo Rida featuring Sia “Wild Ones”

58. Ellie Goulding “The Writer”

59. The Killers “Runaways” Haven’t loved The Killers past few CDs, but I adore this single. It’s a little bit Muse meets ’80s ballad.

60. KISS and Ace Frehley “New York Groove” This is the song at the end of that commercial where they play different songs for different locations until they cross the Brooklyn Bridge playing this. A song that makes me miss NYC.

61. Adam Levine and Tony Lucca on The Voice “Yesterday”

62. Ellie Goulding “Your Song”

63. Of Monsters and Men “Little Talks”
