In this playlist I’ve put together my favourite covers – some with big changes and some with small. But I’ve tried to give you the unexpected. That’s why you’ll find a BeeGee’s song sung by Nina Simone in Italian, a disco version of Jolene, and that hauntingly beautiful version of God Only Knows by a school class of children. I hope you will enjoy these.

 

 

About Oda

“I have been insatiably curious about music for as long as I can remember. I’ve always wanted to know what song that is, what kind of music came before it, who was inspired by it, and so on. So it was perhaps a natural step that I started collecting music, and eventually also started DJ-ing.

At home I listen to most kinds of music, but my main genre is jazz. When I DJ I have one rule: I play whatever makes me dance, and hope that that makes other people dance too. That means that most of the music I play is soul, funk, psychedelic and rock, since that is what makes me tap my toes. But I never put restrictions on what kind of music to play, which means that you shouldn’t be surprised if I all of a sudden play a disco song, or a 90ies hit. After all, good music is good music, no matter the label you put on it.”
