cover(t) operations

Here are a bunch of cover songs I ran into during the second half of 2013 that I liked a lot or at least found amusing or weird enough to merit inclusion. (Update: I’ve re-uploaded this to remove a few glitches and alter a segue or two. You might want to re-download if you downloaded before 1/10/14.)
