Fall Into The Gap: Favorite Songs (2005)

I love Amoeba Records. There is always a pretty good chance you will find a gem there. Yesterday was no exception. I found in the clearance section a cd entitled "Gap Favorite Songs: Fall 2005," which contains all of the songs that were featured in their commercial campaign of that year. It is especially notable because it contains many remarkable versions of classic songs covered by today's artists. I especially love the version of Seal's "Crazy" by Alanis Morissette and The Beach Boy's "God Only Knows" covered by the always soulful Joss Stone. Give it a listen, you're bound to find something you love, even if you hate the clothing company that released it.

Track List:
John Legend - Hello, It's Me - The Isley Brothers
Joss Stone - God Only Knows - The Beach Boys
Jason Mraz - One Love - Bob Marley
Alanis Morrisette - Crazy - Seal
Brandon Boyd - Alison - Elvis Costello
Michelle Williams - Let's Stay Together - Al Green
Keith Urban - Most People I Know Think That I'm Crazy - Billy Thorpe
Bonus Track: Michelle Branch - Life On Mars - David Bowie
