About Songs Not By Me

My name is Mike Vasas. This project was inspired by Nilsson Sings Newman. I was listening to it and thought I’d like to do something similar, but I could never make up my mind on who to cover. So, eventually I generated a list of songs that would be fun to cover and realized if I wanted to do even a third of them, I’d have to do at least twenty records…so that led me to the final idea. I uploaded a song every day for the entirety of 2010.

Listen to all 365 songs in the project below.

I love recording and am obsessed with production, arrangements, and studio experimentation so this project was a fun way for me to do those things and keep working. Many people helped me out along the way.

I tried my best to provide information on the original song so you can purchase and support those artists behind these great songs.

My tracks are free to download and play on your computers, portable devices, etc. If you want to support my endeavors, tell your friends! You can donate, too.

The best thing you can do is leave comments, links, etc. If you know more about the original songs or know of other cover versions, or have versions you did yourself, leave a comment or email m i k e @ m i k e v a s a s . c o m.
