Have you ever felt embarrassed listening to one-hit wonders or pop gems of yesteryear? Fear not. Your favorite Indie superstars are giving the OK by joining in together for "Guilt By Association", a collection of songs by today's most exciting Indie talent re-interpreting their favorite guilty pleasure pop songs. Petra Haden delivers a soaring acapella version of Journey's anthem Don't Stop Believin'. Will Oldham/Bonnie 'Prince' Billy turns Mariah Carey's Can't Take That Away into a bittersweet synth ballad. Jim O'Rourke, who produced albums for Wilco, Beth Orton and Joanna Newsom transforms the Spice Girls' ballad Viva Forever into something that wouldn't have been out of place as a take out of a Beth Orton session.

Lets all wallow in our guilt and enjoy these remembered gems, indie-style.

Tracks:
The Concretes/Back For Good (Take That)
Porter Block/Breaking Free (High School Musical)
Mike Watt/Burning For You (Blue Oyster Cult)
Will Oldham/Bonnie 'Prince' Billy/Can't Take That Away (Mariah Carey)
Casey Shea/Chop Suey (System of a Down)
Devendra Banhart/Don't Look Back In Anger (Oasis)
Petra Haden/Don't Stop Believing (Journey)
Mark Mulcahy/From This Moment On (Shania Twain)
Mooney Suzuki/Just Like Jesse James (Cher)
Woody Jackson Orchestra featuring Money Mark/Love's Theme (Love Unlimited Orchestra)
Superchunk/Say My Name (Destiny's Child)
Luna/Straight Up (Paula Abdul)
Goat/Sugar We're Going Down (Fall Out Boy)
Geoff Farina/Two Tickets To Paradise (Eddie Money)
Jim O'Rourke/Viva Forever(Spice Girls)

"Burning for you" is a great song! I'd love to hear how Watt covers it.

I LOVE The Spice Girls! This so awesome

Viva Forever is one of my favourite songs, such a beautiful string arrangement. I can't wait to see what Jim does with it...
