Ravinia Mixtape: Cover Songs by 2015 Artists

Ravinia Mixtape The Covers

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and in the music world, a hit is bound to be covered. When an artist creates their version of a well-known song, they get to recreate it while putting their own stamp on it. Our 2015 Artists Covers Mix contains a wealth of these worthwhile covers by artists performing in our 2015 season. To start, check out Aretha Franklin’s cover of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” and listen to how the Gipsy Kings add a flamenco flavor to The Eagles’ “Hotel California.” The playlist is organized so that similar genres of music are presented together. It starts off with pop and rock and then settles into calming classical and jazz towards the end.
