Remember the Audiogalaxy era, when badly tagged MP3s credited to the wrong artists would travel around the Internet willy-nilly, with no one correctly ID’ing their ID3 tags? We do, all too well. So when this missive from commenter gorillavsmarykate landed in our inbox today, we were inspired to launch a new feature: Welcome to “The Unknown Cover,” where we enlist our readers’ vast knowledge in the effort to match incorrectly tagged songs from peer-to-peer searches gone by to their proper artists. (Feel free to send in your own.) Let’s begin:
I was hoping you or the readers could help identify this artist who covered the Cat Stevens song, Trouble. I downloaded this song back in the old Kazaa days, and it was credited to Oasis but I’ve never seen it verified. I’ve also read it may be Travis, but doubt it.
We listened to the track and even attempted some Google trickery, but we’re stumped–so it’s below. Anyone?
