Various Artists - Sweetheart - Hear Music

Sweetheart is an excellent collection of covers of love songs featuring many favorite XPN artists. Recorded especially for this collection, it includes a mix of classic love songs and more recent tunes.

The CD includes Kathleen Edwards’ cover of Tom Petty’s “Face In The Crowd,” Aimee Mann’s version of the Burt Bachrach/Hal David classic, “What The World Needs Now,” Ron Sexsmith’s Bing Crosby-inspired “Moonlight Becomes You,”Nick Lowe’s rendition of the R&B classic, “It’s All In The Game,” and Joe Henry’s take on the Ann Peebles’ classic “Until You Came Into My Life.”

Also included on the CD are contributions from Sarah Harmer, Josh Ritter, Nada Surf, Iron & Wine, Cibo Matto's Mino Hatori (covering Madonna), Clem Snide and an alluring version of John Lennon’s “Love” by Rosie Thomas. You don’t need to wait until Valentine’s Day to catch the spirit. This album will remind you that love is always in the air.
