Just for fun, I uploaded the entire album of News Of The World in cover form to YouTube. I had a few different versions of some tracks to pick from, like too many covers of WWRY and WATC, so I picked the ones I found most interesting or that I liked best. Some songs only had one artist or group ever do a version, so that's what got used in the end. 

I hope I don't get too many "why did you use that version?" replies. This was an experiment to recreate the entire album and in that, I think it's really interesting to hear the whole thing done by other artists, for better or worse.

The versions and their sources are listed in the description section. I used the sleeve art for each recording to help identify where it came from.
