There are plenty of terrible cover songs floating around the interweb, but it’s hard to complain about quality ones. Calexico has had their share of covers, a take on classics such as Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart” or Love’s “Alone Again Or.” We’ve put together some of our favorites from the Tucson, Arizona-based band.

Love Will Tear Us Apart (Joy Division cover)

Clothes of Sand (Nick Drake cover)

Ocean of Noise (Arcade Fire cover)

Heart of Gold (Neil Young cover)

Just Got Paid (ZZ Top cover)

Calexico covers aren’t the typical hearing the same song twice. Infused with Latin sounds, Calexico is music for the wandering souls. We’ll be excited until they roll through with Bahamas in a few weeks, and dreaming about the summer. A getaway from the cold winter blues, we’re down for that.

Calexico will be here with Bahamas on January 22nd. Tickets are still available to purchase online. Until then, swoon over the covers above.

    I can’t believe you left “Danger Zone” off this list. It’s insanely good.
