Great selection of tunes, although Prince should have stuck with HOOPS.

If you two are still thinking of a Cover episode down the road, here are a couple of more possibilities to add to the list. Please do not dismiss them before hearing them -
Petra Haden singing A'cappella the Journey song "Don't stop believin'" (She even does the guitar solo.)

An interesting one is Joni Mitchell doing a remake of her own song "Both Sides Now", almost 30 years after the original.

And for something completely different: Johnny Cash singing One by U2.

Keep 'em comin'.
